Event Details

Join us for a public lecture with Dr Rachael Levy, visiting scholar from Sheffield University.

When:   Tuesday 13 November 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Where:  Room 1, Level 1, Flinders Victoria Square

This public lecture focuses on the benefits of shared reading with young children in homes, given that we know there are substantial benefits in reading with young children from their earliest years. By drawing on a research study with 29 families in two English cities, this presentation demonstrates how for many families, shared reading is already a part of ‘doing family’.  However, for some families, there is a need for certain conditions to be met if shared reading practices are to be maintained or, in some cases, occur at all. Learn some practical solutions to support literacy in our homes and communities.

Rachael’s research interests include reading, literacy and gender. She has an interest in the philosophy of educational research which informs her teaching as well as the methodology of conducting participatory research with young children. As well as ensuring that students receive a thorough grounding in course content, Rachael employs a philosophical approach to her teaching, inviting students to critically reflect upon and challenge their existing concepts, beliefs, values and experiences that they bring to the various programmes.
