2012-2013 Web Seminars

We announced the 2012-2013 series of Global Conversations in Literacy Research (GCLR), web seminars. GCLR is one of the only online projects that offers free access and participation in web seminars that feature leading and internationally-recognized scholars in the field of literacy. As an Internet-based project, GCLR is grounded in critical literacy, and sees as its mission to provide no-cost, accessible professional development that connects leading literacy scholars with global populations, to utilize knowledge for quality literacy research, and to make knowledge available to globally diverse groups of people interested in literacy research and practices. Please consider adding these web seminars to your course syllabi and sharing these links with global others interested in literacy. For questions, please contact project founder Dr. Peggy Albers (malbers2@gsu.edu), Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA, USA.
