Stories from the Field Book Launch and Celebration of International Literacy Day

“For over 40 years now, UNESCO has been celebrating International Literacy Day by reminding the international community that literacy is a human right and the foundation of all learning.” UNESCO

Bow Valley College and the Calgary Public Library invite you to join us at the John Dutton Theatre for networking and a celebration on September 8, 2014.

Stories from the Field is a Bow Valley College project that took a journalistic approach to professional development for adult literacy and essential skills practitioners across the province. The two publications, a book and a magazine, explore innovations, challenges and diversity across a variety of community and college settings.

The evening program will be a panel discussion which will introduce you to a selection of practitioners and their work profiled in the Stories from the Field publications.

Copies of Stories from Field: Professional Development for Literacy Practitioners will be available.

There will be light refreshments following the discussion.

  1. Congratulations to Sandi, Berniece, Jenny, Samra, Candace and others who created these amazing resources.
    Best wishes for a wonderful launch of Stories from the Field. I hope you can video record it and upload it to this site.I feel so lucky to have been a part of such a valuable project. With the loss of Copian, we have to make sure that quality resources like the book and magazine are accessible to adult literacy educators.
    I will be thinking about you from Toronto,
