This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Pam Osmond about her new internationally published book ‘Developing Social Equity in Australian Adult Education, Lessons from the Past.’

This is the first in a series of short online interviews called Something to say: Lessons learners, lessons ahead.

Pam discusses her book, which looks at the history of adult basic education and explains what we can learn from the past to guide us into the future, particularly around opening discursive spaces for social cohesion. As always, Pam’s insights inspire inquiry into where the field is and where it’s heading, and serve as a reminder that there is a moral purpose to the profession that allows us to rekindle our passion for adult literacy teaching.

Congratulations Pam – a published book in the field is a huge milestone! You can purchase the ebook (or hard cover version) here:  Developing Social Equity in Australian Adult Education: Lessons from tthe Past (
