Webinar – Literacy development, learning and life experiences of low-education adults

Wednesday, October 15, 2:00 to 3:30 pm

ACER’s October LLN webinar will be conducted by Stephen Reder. Stephen will be presenting on the Longitudinal Study of Adult Learning which systematically compares the learning trajectories and life outcomes of 1000 adults over a 10-year period. Stephen will answer some of the research questions below in this webinar:

  • To what extent do adults’ literacy abilities continue to develop after they leave school?
  • What life experiences are associated with adult literacy development? How does formal learning in basic skills programs contribute to these learning trajectories? Workplace training? Other contexts and activities?
  • What are adult learners’ patterns of participation over time in literacy training and education? And in other learning contexts?
  • What are the impacts of adult literacy development on social and economic outcomes?
  • What are the implications of the findings for future research, program evaluation and improvement, and policy?

Stephen Reder is visiting Australia through the support of the Australian Council for Adult Literacy (ACAL). He is a keynote speaker at the ACAL national conference 2–4 October and is also presenting at a VALBEC Forum in Melbourne on the evening of 15 October.
