Adult Learners' Week 2013: Never stop learning
The Huffington Post
Adult Learners' Week is celebrated in Canada every year. April 6-14, provides a focal point to consider the importance of lifelong learning and recognize the achievements of Canadian adult learners. It's also an opportunity for all adults to take a pause and think about their own learning: What did I learn in the past year? What am I in the middle of learning right now and what should I be thinking about learning next? And what motivates me to learn?

How do you choose your sample size?
Dr. Ken Reynolds of SRA International, Inc.
Random sampling is the basis for most of the procedures of statistical inference. An appropriate sampling methodology ensures the equal likelihood of drawing another sample with the same characteristics as the previous sample, even though both samples may not be exact copies of the population. Thus, what becomes more important in the applied world is that you approach sample selection in the same manner every time in order to minimize both statistical bias and the cost of sample selection as much as possible.

Effective presenting is key to successful training
Training Industry
Nabeel Jaitapker, a contributor for Training Industry, writes: "I remember being invited to present an end-of-the-year campaign for Autism Speaks on behalf of its Dallas chapter in late 2009. The goal was to train current staff and volunteers on how to effectively increase volunteer hours and donations. And so, I developed the idea, wrote a script, designed a slide presentation and rehearsed. I put together an excellent presentation that showcased a need and a call to action, and forwarded it to the client. The director at the Autism Speaks’ Dallas office loved it and told me that it was one of the most appealing presentations she had ever seen and she looked forward to me presenting it to her staff. But, I felt like it was still missing something."

With the "anytime, anywhere, any way" learning model provided by online professional development content providers, why hasn't online PD become more mainstream? THE Journal recently engaged a small panel of thought leaders from professional development providers to discuss the barriers that have prevented online PD from taking off, the current state of online PD, and what to expect in the near future.

Curriculum changes for a changing world
By Rosemary Sparacio
The newest unemployment figures have given pause to the experts on the economy. Even though the unemployment rate fell slightly to 7.6 percent, job gains were weak in March; hence, the overall picture is still not promising. Educators and educational institutions need to act now to make some changes in the way students are taught and make changes in the curriculum to try to address this situation.
