Call for Presenters

The Decoda Literacy Conference will be an interactive, dynamic and informative learning experience! Together, through an exciting knowledge exchange, over 200 participants will focus on emerging trends and critical issues and develop skills to tackle literacy challenges that face British Columbians.

The conference theme is “Literacy connects us!”

Do you have something to share? We invite literacy practitioners, researchers and others involved in literacy and learning to submit proposals for workshops and panel discussions on how literacy connects us.

Topics may include:

  • Adult literacy
  • Clear language and design
  • Community capacity building
  • Family literacy
  • Financial, health and/or digital literacy
  • Literacy and essential skills
