Exploring literacy in the South African schooling and higher education contexts
Zoom link to the page:
The South African government has recognised illiteracy as a matter of concern for children, youth, and adults. Literacy development in South African is complicated, however, by the current language in education practices and differentiated educational opportunities, amongst other contextual factors. In order to attain the goal of national literacy, we must review lessons learnt and identify effective strategies to enhance literacy at all levels. This seminar provides a space for this discussion and aims to draw together knowledge and insights from a range of role players.
