conference @ literacy BC

Violence and Learning: Research to Practice
Pre-conference: April 25 to 28, 2007
Conference: April 29 to May 26, 2007

Jenny Horsman, Evelyn Battell, Nadine Sookermany, Heather Ward and Kate Nonesuch invite you to participate in an on-line conference with literacy practitioners from Canada and around the world. We are part of a group of practitioners who are working on the issue of changing literacy practice to take into account the effects of violence on learning. Research has helped us to understand impacts of violence on learning and to identify ways to address them. How can we move this research more widely into literacy practice? During this on-line conference, we will describe projects we are undertaking in various settings to address this question, and we will present our initial findings. We will ask you to react to the findings, reflect on our findings in the light of your experience, and help us push the analysis of our data forward.

Are you interested in the relationship between violence and learning? Are you interested in making change in literacy programs to deal with violence and learning? Are you interested in research in practice (practitioner research)? If so, this on-line conference is for you. The conference will run from April 29 to May 26; feel free to participate in the discussion, or just read what other people have to say.
