Following on from a successful research-into-practice event last year, the Institute of Education (IoE), partnered and funded by the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism (CeLM), are staging another for 2017. This event will draw on presentations from both academics and practitioners in order to make links between research and practice related to potential barriers to literacy for primary aged children.

Breaking Barriers to Literacy takes place on

Thursday May 25th 2017

The first part of the afternoon gives attendees the opportunity to hear presentations on all four areas of literacy and language teaching from IoE and CeLM academics joined by expert practitioners.
