The day will draw upon Teresa’s experiences as a teacher, leader, CPD co-ordinator, teacher trainer, researcher and influential author. A practical event informed by research, you will develop your understanding and ability to develop reading for pleasure (RfP) with responsibility, rigour and relevance. This will enable you to make more of a difference to all children, particularly less advantaged readers.
Teresa is a Professor of Education (Literacy) at The Open University, a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, the Royal Society of the Arts, and the English Association. She is the UK’s go-to practitioner in promoting RfP amongst our learners and a leading researcher into sustaining engagement in reading within and beyond the classroom. She has published over 30 books and leads a RfP coalition that recognises leisure reading as a tool to address social justice and leverage social change. Teresa has served as a President of the UK Reading Association and the UKLA, and on the Board Member of the BookTrust, and as a Trustee of the Poetry Archive.
