Case Studies of Practice Work in Ireland

Langue: EN

Posté par Emma Grainger

This report looks at six very different groups undertaking literacy work with adults. The work of the groups and their facilitators ranges from those using a cultural event to advance literacy learning and those looking closer at learning to learn as part of literacy. The six case studies presented in this report highlight literacy and numeracy practice as it happens on the ground. Each case study illustrates how the individual programmes are providing a range of courses to meet the varying and specific needs of the students attending. The case studies included in this report illustrate that there is no definitive way of ensuring ‘best practice’ on the ground. However, they do demonstrate aspects of the principles of good adult literacy work including student centred learning, literacy as a social practice and a humanistic approach to adult learning.
