Research to Practice

Adult Educator Survey

COABE is committed to supporting adult educators by inspiring educators so adults succeed and communities thrive. Our Research To Practice Initiative, which is generously sponsored by Essential Education, supports this mission by focusing on the problems that adult educators face. Over the next year the Research To Practice Initiative will examine solutions to these challenges with articles from the COABE Journal, webinars by adult ed practitioners, and actual lessons ideas shared in the Adult Education Resources shared repository. Please complete this short survey to help us address all of the important common issues that adult educators face.
