“Literacy” session (2 hours)

In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the workshop, we will be sensitive to the different meanings that the term “Literacy” has within and across disciplines. Also, it is hoped all participants will play an active role in the session by giving their views.

The 2-hour session is structured around three broad themes: Hindsight, Insight & Foresight.

•    Norbert Pachler has volunteered for ‘short’ Insight presentations
•    Margit, Elizibetta & John may have something to say on this.
•    And responses from participants coordinated by John.
3. Foresight  –  Should Schools/HE/tertiaty be transformed to enable new types of learning, and of so how, and under what scenarios?
•    Break down into small groups, work for 20 minutes on answers to Foresight, 5 minutes for each group appointed speaker to feed back
•    After each group feedback Margit, Elizibetta & John facilitate discussion.
