Australian Council for Adult Literacy Conference 2013
Conference in response to preliminary findings of the 2011/2012 PIAAC international adult literacy survey by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and current topics which chime with challenges we are engaging with here such as vocationally and academically integrated literacies, educating young school leavers, community development and professionalisation of the literacies workforce.
Most of us are not lucky enough to make it all the way to Australia but Mary Hamilton, Lancaster University, and Jeff Evans, Middlesex University, are keynote speakers. There is a huge spread of workshops over three full days! Take a look http://www.acal.edu.au/13conf/sessions.htm. Looking forward to some of the shared media at the end and maybe an article or three in our journals.
