Adult education tutors!
Join us at the 2019 National Forum for Adult Literacy Tutors organisd by NALA, which will focus on the process of transformation from different perspectives – the learner and the tutor. It will look at how this transformation can be analyzed and supported and how it can bring positive change to both learners and tutors.
Tony Daly (80:20) and Helen Ryan (NALA) will be contributing to the Forum through workshops, Beyond the click: Challenging fake news in the learning environment, based on the educator’s toolkit.
