This course explains adult learning principles. The KTER Center developed it for VR supervisors participating in its knowledge brokering study. The goal of the information was to help them pass on knowledge, from another module describing research-based strategies for better serving their clients, to the VR counselors they supervise. These adult learning principles, however, can apply to any situation where there are adults learning new material to apply to in the workplace.
About the series:
The KTER Center recently developed two scoping reviews related to pre-employment transition services for students with disabilities, and job-related social communication skills of adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The research these reviews identified can inform vocational rehabilitation (VR) services to help clients succeed in getting jobs and keeping them. Tune in to these short, on-demand webcasts to hear the scoping reviews’ findings, methods, and implications for practice.
About the Webcast: Research into employment outcomes for the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Program is critical to assessing participant impact. While VR employment research is essential to documenting any employment outcomes, turning the research data into information that is used by a variety of stakeholders is equally important. This webinar will focus on the NIDILRR-funded Vocational Rehabilitation Return on Investment (VR ROI) research project to develop a methodologically rigorous model to determine the employment impacts and return on investment for the VR Program.

State Differences in Knowledge and Application of Evidence-Based Practice by Vocational Rehabilitation Agency Staff
The Knowledge Translation for Employment Research Center at SEDL and its partner, Virginia Commonwealth University, conducted an online survey of staff in state vocational rehabilitation agencies regarding their knowledge and use of evidence-based practice (EBP). This technical brief reports our findings, reporting state differences concerning the use of research, and discussing EBP in employment services for individuals with disabilities.
KTER Center staff and invited guests participated in KTER’s 2019 State of the Science (SoS) Conference on Employment Research on September 5-6, 2019 in Portland, Maine, in conjunction with the 12th Annual Summit on Performance Management Excellence. The SoS was a special track of presentations organized by the KTER Center that focused on the knowledge translation of research on improving employment outcomes for people with disabilities.
