Collaborative research practices, to understand and improve children and young people's literacy experiences and outcomes
At the University of Edinburgh’s Literacy Lab, we are interested in the literacy practices, experiences and outcomes of children, young people, and adults.
In our research, we regularly work with teachers, other professionals, children and young people, to ensure the research we carry out is relevant and meaningful, and draws upon their knowledge, experience and expertise.
We also have an interest in, and commitment to, teachers’ professional development and translating academic research for teachers so that it can be more easily accessed and applied to classroom contexts.
You can learn about some of the many projects in the Literacy lab through our BERA Special Issue Blog: To read, or not to read, published May 2023: https://www.bera.ac.uk/blog-series/to-read-or-not-to-read
