ACAL conference 2017

  • Conference

In 2017 the Australian Council for Adult Literacy celebrates 40 years actively promoting language, literacy, numeracy, and communication advocacy and research. The Conference offers delegates a unique opportunity to explore the conditions required for more critically engaged debates about local, regional and global provision. Northern Australia provides a rich location in which to challenge stereotypes, reinvigorate relationships and provoke new conceptualisations of participation.

Conference strands include:

  •     21st Century identities and citizenship traditions
  •     Institutional and nation state routines and participation practices
  •     Digital and computational practices in a mobile world

Presenters are encouraged to think about how these themes capture:

  •     cross-cultural practices and identities andhow these have changed over time
  •     the implications for locating oneself in the ‘LLN’ or alternative fields
  •     advances in technology and how these shape and re-shape communication practices and identities
  •     assessment, surveillance and power in formal and non-formal education
  •     citizenship practices and texts that produce transnational networks
