The course understands literacy will foster a comprehensive understanding of literacy as social practice, informing evidence-based approaches with the latest theoretical understandings from leading-edge research into literacy learning and teaching. Graduates will acquire specialist knowledge in literacy policy, theory and curriculum; contemporary literacies; supporting diverse and exceptional learners and literacy leadership. Graduates will be well placed to lead schools and students in all facets of literacy and literacy development.
