Investigating Functionality in Bilingual Adult Literacy Programmes:

Date: 20 February 2007 Time: 1.00 pm

Literacy Research Centre Seminar Series Tuesday 20 February 2007 (Week 6) 12.50-2.15pm in IAS Meeting Room 2INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDIESInvestigating Functionality in Bilingual Adult Literacy Programmes: A Case Study from Kom, CameroonJean Seraphin Kamdem, PhD Fellow, Dept. of Languages and Cultures of Africa, SOAS, University of LondonThis research is an investigation into the motivations for and expectations of attending literacy classes of adults in Kom, and into their acquisition of functional literacy skills. I am investigating literacy initially as skills and knowledge and sets of know-how's, but I want also to look at adult literacy as learners perceive its social value. Literacy takes place with and through both human resources and material resources. Consequently, major domains of investigation of functionality are the didactic materials used in literacy classes and the pedagogic practices themselves. My research aims also to account for the psychological constructs that pre-define and influence the interaction of learners and literacy delivery as a pedagogic/learning process. Everyone welcome.
