Adult literacy conference.
The Research and Practice in Adult Literacy (RaPAL) conference, hosted by the University of Wales, Newport, was attended by delegates from the UK, Ireland, Germany, Canada, the USA and Australia.
Focusing on the theme Sustainable Literacies, delegates shared teaching and research ideas, as well as exploring the notions of sustainability, diversity, social justice and environmental responsibility in adult literacy education.
Dr Amy Burgess, chair of RaPAL, said: "It's especially relevant to discuss sustainable literacies here in Wales because of the successful efforts to sustain the Welsh language and culture."
Founded in 1985, RaPAL is an independent network of learners, teachers, managers and researchers.
