Welcome to the PaceSetter Blog

The PaceSetter is a historical newsletter (1995-2008) published by Pace Learning Systems. The PaceSetter was retired in 2008, and archived issues can be found below.

Dr. Susan McKee and Clint Massey at Pace have re-created The PaceSetter as a regular “Pace staff blog,” which will focus in long-form writing on issues important to our mission. Upcoming topic categories, while not limited, will include: adult basic education/andragogy, community literacy, soft skills development, work readiness training, basic skills fluency, self-paced learning, feedback in learning and teaching, mastery learning and its benefits, and many others.

We hope the PaceSetter Blog is a place we can help define our approach to education, and we hope you will find value in our thoughts. We’d love to know what you think!
