NSWALNC Annual Conference
This year’s in-person conference focuses on the many kinds of literacies and numeracies that adults develop to negotiate their personal, social and workplace needs and demands. As the recent COVID experience has shown, being ‘literate’ and ‘numerate’ in the contemporary world is a life-long, life-wide and some say ‘life-deep’ endeavour. Adult educators play a critical role in supporting learners to develop and expand their literacy and numeracy repertoires. However, the learners’ repertoires already contain personal histories and experiences, knowledge and skills, multimodal resources as well as their ‘ruling passions’ which can find expression in the process of engaging in new literacy and numeracy practices.
The conference will feature two keynote speakers who will join by video: Professor Jennifer Rowsell and Professor Bill Muth, who will stimulate us to think about how learners’ lives, passions and creativity are intertwined in their literacy and numeracy practices, and why, as educators, we need to appreciate and embrace this. Adult educators are invited to share their experiences, approaches and ideas of literacy and numeracy teaching with colleagues in workshops.
