Welcome

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 aim to better understand and support the literacy experiences and outcomes of children and young people.  In our research we regularly work with children, young people, teachers and other professionals, to ensure our work draws upon the distinct, yet complementary knowledge, experience and expertise that each bring.

We also have an interest in, and commitment to, translating academic research for teachers so that it can be  more easily accessed and applied to classroom contexts.  We work regularly with teachers, and other professionals, to communicate outcomes from our research to inform teachers’ professional learning and practice.

 

Our research is very closely affiliated with the LALco (Language and Literacy: Communication, collaboration, co-production) network, a multidisciplinary network of individuals working across different contexts, with shared interest in supporting and improving children and young people’s language and literacy skills and experiences.  LALco was founded in 2019 by Dr Lynne Duncan (University of Dundee) and Dr Sarah McGeown (University of Edinburgh), with the support of funding from the Scottish Universities Insight Institute.
