On the 15th & 16th July 2010 a very successful symposium took place that was jointly hosted by Unitec, New Zealand and the National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy for Adults.

We have kept the details of this event online for reference purposes. From the links below you can access copies of the Symposium programme as well as details of the workshops that took place.

The purpose of this symposium was:

  • To enhance attendees content knowledge for teaching literacy and numeracy.
  • To expand attendees range of strategies for using the national tools and resources.
  • To enhance understanding of teaching for diverse groups with particular emphasis on effective practice for Maori learners.
  • To establish communities of literacy and numeracy champions that can be sustained through advisory work and ICT based networks.
  • To increase attendees familiarity with up-to-date research in adult literacy and numeracy.

The programme included keynote speakers who are experts in literacy and numeracy for adults, practical workshops to demonstrate tecahing ideas, and a forum for tutors to share their practice.
