Literacy and Development

Episode 2: Matt Wisbey | Migration, Urbanisation & Multilingualism

It seems like most weeks at least one member of the Redcliffe Faculty team is participating in a gathering of people engaged in mission thinking and practice. One of our aims for the podcast is to hear about these events and capture the mission conversations going on around the world.

In this episode Matt Wisbey, lecturer on our MA in Literacy Programme Development, tells us about a recent Community of Practice event he was involved in. Focused on the theme of ‘Migration, Urbanisation, and Multilingualism’, it was held in Singapore, a place that reflected very well the issues of the conference.

We found it fascinating to learn more about these big themes in mission, and thought Matt’s reflections offered some really helpful examples of good practice for organising successful conferences. The event was also captured using storify, which you can read here: CoP event storify page
