Hi there tout la gang,

but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

welcome to the blogosphere alpha

AlphaPlus has created a blog to share ideas, links, news and information about literacy and employment training in Ontario and elsewhere.

Two members of the AlphaPlus staff, Flora Doehler and Maria Moriarty are the main contributors to this blog.

Flora has been at AlphaPlus since 2001 and has worked in the information and resource service and as a web developer and designer. Flora is a painter, an accomplished gardener and nature lover. Her favourite place to be (when she’s not at AlphaPlus) is Bear River, Nova Scotia.

Maria has worked at AlphaPlus for more years than she cares to remember. She has worked in the information and resource service and in supporting research and research in practice projects. Maria is an enthusiastic, if amateur, gardener, an avid reader and baseball fanatic. Her favourite place to be (when she’s not at AlphaPlus) is in one of her two home towns, Montreal and Dublin.

They are making a lively, collaborative space where we can share knowledge, experience and questions about adult literacy and employment training. This blog will connect people, and ideas so that we can all learn from each other and can respond to changes, challenging times and opportunities as they come up.

Maria and Flora will post information and links to adult literacy, resources, issues, questions, good news, and sometimes not so good news. They invite adult literacy workers, practitioners, researchers as well as employment training agency staff to share information, ideas and questions on the blog.

It's great to see our blog on the Literacies Cafe - the literacy "happening" place in cyberspace... so thank you
Flora and myself are committed to working as hard as we can to make our blog an interesting, collaborative space - and we invite the literacy world to come and visit, to share and to help us to learn from each other.

We created this blog as a space for literacy workers and programs to share their work and as a space for us at AlphaPlus to connect the literacy field to great resources and tools that we come across - we also want to connect with and to the employment training community. We have just begun and right now it feels a little like we're talking to ourselves!!! so we invite you to join in the conversation and visit us often.

Maria (Moriarty)
