This annual conference aims to stimulate professional conversations about future developments in literacy pedagogy and practice in a national and international context. The program will:
- provide an opportunity for teachers, academics and policy makers to share concerns as well as potential solutions to the current challenges facing literacy educators
- thematically link keynotes to other presentations and workshops to clearly establish links between theory and practice. This will be modeled through the work of successful research-based partnerships
- add fresh perspectives on current issues.
The scope of papers, workshops and presentations will cover issues pertinent to the school years K10: infants through to secondary.
Participants may attend the conference as a stand-alone event, or as part of the Certificate in Literacy Education.
