Adult Literacy

Research Group Summary

Improving levels of adult literacy is a key issue in New Zealand and internationally. Our team of experts in this area has a wide range of experiences and research that have explored supports and barriers for adult literacy learners. Professor Niki Davis and Dr Jo Fletcher were commissioned by the New Zealand Ministry of Education to undertake a research project on E-learning for adult literacy, language and numeracy. Professor John Everatt supported this research project. Additionally, Professor Everatt has undertaken research investigations surrounding adult literacy learners with dyslexia. Professor Davis and Dr Fletcher were invited to present their research at the Institute of Adult Learners’ Symposium in Singapore (2012). This has resulted in further work with the Institute of Adult Learners in Singapore.
