Saturday 17th June 2023 – 9.30-16.00
Join us at the 8th OU and UKLA joint conference on Reading for pleasure!
It’s on Saturday 17th June 9.30-4 and only costs £40!! Held at the OU in Milton Keynes, we will be welcoming Onjali Rauf and Jon Biddle as keynote speakers, alongside award winning teachers who effectively foster RfP and 5 workshops to choose from.
The focus is on informal text talk between readers that plays a key role in motivating and sustaining the habit of reading. Such relaxed, non-assessed blethering about texts, about reading and about being a reader takes many forms and helps build reading communities. It deserves increased professional attention. This inspiring conference will offer participants’ opportunities to explore research-informed practice and Norfolk Children’s Book Centre and UKLA bookshops will enrich the day. Workshops will be led by the OU RfP team and talented teachers, offering engaging ways forward.
