Talking Literacy

Conversations with international experts.

Following the incredible success of the first series of AUSPELD’s Talking Literacy webinars, we are excited to announce the line-up of guests for series two!

Talking Literacy features conversations with international experts as they share some of their acquired knowledge, key discoveries and thoughts for the future. The series focuses on the acquisition of language, literacy and numeracy and includes interviews with Stanislas Dehaene, Julie Washington, Natalie Wexler, William Van Cleave, Maria Murray and David Kilpatrick, as well as a special episode to start off the 2021 series featuring three of the world’s leading reading researchers, Kathy Rastle, Kate Nation and Anne Castles.

These interviews (conducted by AUSPELD President Mandy Nayton) are essential viewing for teachers, administrators, speech pathologists, psychologists and parents concerned with evidence-informed practice in the fields of literacy and learning.

Registered participants will receive an email link to watch each webinar when it goes live on the scheduled date. You will be able to view the webinars via the link at a time of your convenience. If you have not already registered, please do so here.
