Course Level 3: Advanced
Estimated Study Time: 10-12 hours
This course explores some of the tensions and debates linked to the aim of achieving literacy for all, using specific examples. It focuses on current significant debates related to the teaching of the technical aspects of literacy to a ‘sufficient standard’ and debates related to becoming a ‘literate person’. In particular it looks at the way these debates and their implicit conceptualizations of literacy have the potential to both enhance and limit literacy engagement and learners’ participation in the world.
