Education Div. 20 strives to advance the study of psychological development and change throughout the adult years. We invite membership from psychologists who provide services to older adults, conduct research on adult development and aging, or are interested in learning more about or teaching life span development and aging. Adult Basic Education and Developmental Education SIPI’s Adult Basic Education (ABE) and Developmental Education program seeks to ensure that students have every opportunity to be successful in achieving their individual goals.
This report examines three partnerships between adult education programs and developmental education in community colleges and provides recommendations to help adult learners develop skills to be successful in postsecondary education. The paper concludes with practical applications of adult developmental research to adult education in the areas of program development, instruction, and counseling.
