Towards the Development of an International Research Strategy for Literacy and Essential Skills (2009)

Perspectives from Academic and Practitioner Researchers in Canada and Ireland

This document summarizes material presented during the annual conference of the Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education (CASAE), held in Ottawa in 2009.

The symposium explores four diverse perspectives towards the development of a research strategy. The perspectives come from academic researchers and practitioner researchers, two from Canada’s University of Ottawa and two from Queen’s University Belfast, in Northern Ireland. The authors note that the two countries share comparable rates of adult literacy.

The authors attempt to identify the types of elements in such a strategy that might be promoted at an international level on the common topic of literacy and essential skills.
