Event Details

Practice-Based Updates for Literacy Strategies and Education (P.U.L.S.E.) is an interactive forum for practitioners in the field of adult literacy. Birthed from a desire to fully address the plight of adult illiteracy in the Metro Detroit area and facilitate a collaborative platform for discussion leading to viable action steps, Reading Works and Wayne State University’s Harris Literacy Program created this holistic adult literacy professional development opportunity, featuring a keynote presentation and a multidisciplinary panel of experts. P.U.L.S.E. is designed to provide a hands-on, minds-on experience that engages each participant as practical, evidence-based applications for adult literacy improvement are explored. Through P.U.L.S.E, we seek to harness modern innovations in adult literacy and disseminate impactful practices that move literacy learners toward greater self-sufficiency. 

Dr. McLendon  This year's keynote presenter is Dr. Lennox McLendon, an expert who has dedicated his whole life to adult education. With over 30 years of experience in this field, Dr. McLendon has served as a teacher, program director, state director and consultant. He received his doctoral degree in adult education from Virginia Tech, holds a Master of Adult and Community College Education from North Carolina State University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. He began his career as a part-time teacher and over the years has taught ABE, GED and served as an adult education program manager.

After his tenure at the local level, he spent more than ten years with the Virgina Department of Education as a regional consultant for 30 local adult education programs. For the next twelve years, he was the state director of adult education in Virginia. His professional contributions during that time included Chair of the National Coalition for Literacy, leadership roles with the national council of state directors, and advisory roles with partners such as the American Bar Association's Law and Literacy Initiative. Most recently, he was the Executive Director of the National Adult Education Professional Development Consortium. In that role, he responded to the adult education information needs of Congress and White House staff members. In his retirement, he continues to facilitate professional development activities for adult education stakeholders across the country.
