Adult Learning Zone: A Designers for Learning Project
This group's purpose is to repurpose and create open educational resources (OER) for adult basic education instructors and learners. The OER shared in this group were designed by volunteers contributing on service projects facilitated by Designers for Learning, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the US. Designers for Learning coordinates volunteer instructional design service-learning opportunities with those who seek to gain experience creating instruction and other types of performance improvement solutions for nonprofits and other social causes.
