Enhancing educational practices through embedding literacy, language and numeracy

1,474 views

Published on

Embedding literacy and numeracy into course content enables students to learn discipline-specific literacy and numeracy skills as part of their subject. At Unitec Institute of Technology, the Academic Literacies Team is responsible for driving the initiative to embed literacy and numeracy in programmes across the institution. Unitec's Literacy, Language and Numeracy Plan includes capability building for staff as well as the embedding of literacy, language and numeracy in programmes. Academic advisors work closely with faculty to facilitate the process of embedding and to monitor how this translates into students' learning experiences.
