Identifying Innovative Program Practices
Welcome to the Advancing Innovation in Adult Education project. We’re on a mission to find innovators in adult education who are helping learners develop knowledge and skills, gain secondary credentials, and transition to further education and employment. Use this site to explore innovative practices in the field.
The Advancing Innovation in Adult Education Project (Contract No. 91990018F0047) is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) and is executed by Manhattan Strategy Group and Abt Associates.
