Dr. Marc Glassman of the faculty of education at Memorial University will be presented with the National Adult Literacy Database Innovative Technology Award later this month in Fredrictonj, N.B.
According to a news release, Glassman is receiving this award for his contribution to the Stella Burry Community Services Workplace Literacy Project. Stella Burry Community Services is a non-profit organization in St. John's which provides affordable housing and employment skills training for adults.
"It was good to see the D of R&D being recognized, in that while my research has been in the area of adult literacy, from this research came the development of something that could directly benefit low-literacy adults in our community," Glassman said of his work at MUN.
Glassman heads the Workplace Literacy Project, which engaged content experts in the fields of carpentry and food-services to provide input on the essential skills, vocabulary and foundational knowledge in these two areas. Glassman converted this content and designed an approach to achieve the desired learning outcomes.
