Talking literacy education down under

I’m honoured to be speaking at the Australian Association of Teachers of English and Australian Literacy Education Association National Conference in Hobart, Tasmania.  The conference has a great programme, including many practitioner presentations; a great group of interesting attendees who are passionate and critical about literacy and English education; and a stunning location overlooking the river in Sandy Bay, Tasmania.

I’m posting here the handouts and slides for my presentations.  Reflections to follow.  Comments also welcome.

Here are the slides, including notes and references, for my plenary: Relocating Teacher Professional Development: From “Learning” to Work:
