It Simply Makes Us Better (2002)

Learning from Literacy Research in Practice Networks

This document is a resource for people interested in adult literacy research in practice, a term that refers to literacy research conducted by or with people directly engaged in adult literacy teaching and learning.

It is based on a study of 11 such networks or projects in the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States. The authors collected information about those networks through face-to-face and telephone interviews, an online survey, websites, and published documents.

From the information collected, they developed descriptions of each network and identified approaches and challenges to supporting research in practice.

Three of the networks, in the United Kingdom and Australia, are national in scope. Those in the United States are based in states or regions.
