Literacy for Learning conference

Literacy for Learning ran its inaugural secondary conference from 21-29 January bringing together a range of diverse voices with literacy at the heart of conversation.

The conference attracted international attendance, with schools from across the UK joined by colleagues from Thailand, UAE, USA and Egypt. Some of the many highlights included a keynote speech by Alex Quigley from the EEF, a roundtable event, including Baroness Lola Young as a panelist, Jonathan Douglas in conversation with YA author Sarah Crossan, highly popular CPD sessions on disciplinary literacy, a research event on reading and a range of literacy and employability events.

You can listen to our research session, The use of research to support students' reading in school and at home below. The session focuses on research to support students reading both at home and in school and is chaired by Dr Kate Rumbold, Senior Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Birmingham.
