From the Margins to the Centre symposium at Flinders University

As many universities face a critical challenge to meet increased demand for student support with limited resources and student services that are stretched to their limits, writing and literacy development can no longer be viewed through the lens of deficit remediation for domestic and international students alike. Universities need to establish more broad-based, university-wide measures to ensure that students gain capacity and ability in critical reading and written expression so that literacy remains a mark of “higher” education.

This one day symposium in Adelaide will showcase and interrogate approaches, practices and policies to aid literacy development among undergradute student populations in Australasian universities. Visit the Flinders website for more details.
