The Ontario Literacy Coalition Conference -- Spotlight on Learning: Literacy Takes Centre Stage..
October 6 and 7, 2008 at the Delta Chelsea Hotel, Toronto..

This event brings two learning models together in one program. The Training Event offers workshops and panel discussions for a wide range of audiences with an interest in literacy and life long learning. The Adult Literacy Learner’s Leadership Forum, running concurrently, gives student leaders an opportunity to learn, share and plan for coordinated future partnerships.

The Training Event and Leadership Programs offers a wide range of workshops categorized in the areas of Learner Leadership Forum, Technology (Computer Labs), Labour Market Initiatives, Applied Learning, Research and Policy, Family Literacy as well as Professionalism/Marketing.

Our goal for the event is to shine a spotlight on learning in its many forms. In showcasing the foundational importance of literacy as a cross-cutting integrated component of learning and living, that spotlight is also cast on the bright future of the literacy field in Ontario.

Online Registration is available now.
