Eagle with an eye on the 2015 ACAL Conference

2015 Call for Presentations

The Australian Council for Adult Literacy (ACAL) is calling for papers for the Conference to be held in Adelaide, at the Adelaide Zoo, on 24 and 25 September.  The Conference theme is:

Resilience, Risk, Preservation:  the evolving world of adult literacies…

We seek relevant, current, informative and captivating sessions on issues and practices that relate to LLN in VET, ACE or industry.  We strongly encourage researchers, practitioners and providers to consider submitting an abstract.

In preparing their abstracts, presenters should keep in mind the themes of the conference:

  • Resilience – effectively adapting and dealing with change for the existing and future workforce

  • Risk – managing pressures resulting from Commonwealth and State government funding changes and meeting national & international LLN standards

  • Preservation – acknowledging and building on achievements to date

Presentations can highlight research (in progress or complete), programs, resources, industry requirements or policy directions.

Due to the nature of the venue, the number of concurrent sessions will be limited.  Presenters need to be prepared to present to larger groups.

Presentations can be either:

a. 45 minute presentation


b. 1.5 hour workshop.

Abstracts should be submitted by 4 May 2015

Notification of the decision on submitted abstracts will be sent by 1 June 2015.  All presenters will be required to register.  Presenters who wish to attend conference sessions will receive discounted registration.
