|Other||The twenty-first century has brought about disruptive changes across all parts of society, providing educators with a variety of opportunities and challenges, including those resulting from a global pandemic. Teachers of literacy and English seek to ensure that their diverse, digitally-connected learners gain the power that they need to effectively navigate the world in which they live — a world of challenge, a world with diverse needs and a world which struggles to make clear just what the ‘truth’ is.|
Our conference theme asks us to: consider the changing nature of our practices; bring a critical eye to our work; and think creatively about how to build a future for literacy and English teaching that creates a better world for our students — a world in which they are active, critical and creatively literate citizens.
