Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

The general theme of this year’s conference provides opportunities to explore and critique the development of literacy teaching over the last 50 years. However, we invite contributors to bring news of research, scholarship, teaching and innovation in literacy education that will inspire delegates to consider the next 50 years. The theme, ’50 Years of Literacy: Continuity and Change’ will explore research and practice on the following topics:

  • the politics of literacy
  • teaching and learning about poetry
  • media, multi-literacies and multimodal practices
  • inclusion and equality
  • creative approaches to the teaching of literacy
  • the role of libraries
  • literacy in the early years
  • adult literacy
  • the role of children’s literature

These, and many more themes, will feature in this convivial conference.
