International Conference on PIAAC and PIAAC-Longitudinal Presentation: Examining digital problem solving skills in libraries to promote digital equity

We were honored to have presented our emerging findings at the International Conference on PIAAC and PIAAC-Longitudinal hosted by GESIS in Mannheim, Germany.  Our presenters were Gloria Jacobs of Portland State University and the University of Arizona along with Jill Castek of the University of Arizona.  It was an invigorating and generative two days of presentations by scholars from around the world on how they are using data from the Programme for the International Assessment on Adult Competencies.  Those attending our session provided us with some great additional insights into our work, and we are excited to continue digging into our data.  We are happy to share the slides from our presentation on this blog. If you have any questions or comments about these slides, we’d love to hear from you!
