Institute of Education


International Literacy Centre

Fostering cutting edge research and critical scholarship on literacy, pedagogy, policy and practice.

The International Literacy Centre brings together literacy researchers, practitioners and teacher educators with an interest in developing an interdisciplinary research agenda that can tackle the most pressing questions in literacy pedagogy, policy and practice from the early years and across the life course.

Our aims:

  • to create a vibrant and distinctive interdisciplinary research culture at UCL Institute of Education that supports innovative and methodologically rigorous thinking in literacy research
  • to deepen local, national and international partnerships that sustain literacy learning and teaching in the early years and across the life course, paying attention to the diverse ways in which literacy is embedded in the social world
  • to bring evidence to bear in public and professional debate on literacy education, literacy policy, and practitioner education
  • to work for the public good by sharing expertise amongst our stakeholders.
