The theme, ‘Empowerment Through Literacy: Literacy Shaping Futures’ will explore research and practice on the following topics:

authentic literacy teaching
multi-literacies and multimodal practices
adult literacy
virtual communities and literacy practices in and beyond the classroom
implications of change for both policy and practice
