Hi there tout la gang,

We don't have much to say about research in practice at the Café right now

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

speakers' corner

In the interests of dreaming big...

The Adult Learning Knowledge Centre recently announced a call for proposals for projects to "bring innovative and informed speakers to address the general public about wide-ranging adult learning issues". Their priorities for funding are:

  • literacy
  • seniors learning
  • arts and culture, and
  • prior learning assessment and recognition.

So often in adult literacy work we're put in a position of reacting to what other people say about literacy and learning. Here's an opportunity to offer the public a broader perspective on literacy. Or to initiate dialogue with someone who might help us build interesting connections beyond the literacy community.

The Speakers Program accepts applications any time and makes granting decisions at the end of every month.
