This Practitioner Research Training Guide was part of NCSALL’s effort to help connect research and practice in the field of adult education and family literacy. The Practitioner Research Training Guide: Research-based Adult Reading Instruction is one of a series of teaching and training materials that NCSALL has developed.

The purpose of this guide is to help professional developers and others organize and conduct professional development that helps practitioners read and discuss research, and plan and conduct their own classroom research related to reading, with the goal of improving their reading instruction practice. Facilitators of the practitioner research training should have experience conducting research or access to a researcher for advice to adequately support the participants during the training.

This practitioner research training guide provides guidance for facilitators as they help practitioners investigate a problem related to reading. Practitioners conduct the research in their own classrooms.
