Understanding Work & Literacy
Click to enlarge

"Arguing that, as a new and fast-growing field, workplace literacy is under-researched and under-theorized, this paper begins by examining the nature and effects of current common understandings of the relationship between work and literacy, particularly as these relate to workers in the Australian workforce. The paper then moves to evaluate what workplace literacy programs have typically been designed to do, before discussing possible ways for future programs to be conducted that allow 'real opportunities' for all workplace participants to be actively involved in the process of workplace reform. Chapters include: Discourses of literacy at work as skill; New ways of work and new worker identities; Workplaces as 'communities of practice'; Mechanisms to access workplaces to promote literacy; Selected bibliography."
