28 February 2022

In this podcast, Professors Julie Dockrell and Chloe Marshall discuss their work examining what affects the development of language, literacy and numeracy, but also the kinds of educational practice that best support the growth of these key skills.

This encapsulates the impetus of the centre they lead, the Centre for Language, Literacy and Numeracy Research and Practice (LLNRP), which has also been significant at IOE and more widely in bringing together researchers across those three fields.
