Consultation on Workplace Literacy (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, June 11-12, 1997). A Report = Consultation sur l'Alphabetisation en Milieu de Travail (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 11-12 juin 1997). Rapport.
National Literacy Secretariat, Ottawa (Ontario).
This report describes a meeting of Canadian partners who had experience in workplace literacy and represented different sectors that was convened to develop two lists of priorities for possible projects--those of interest to all sectors and of interest to each sector. Participants identified six clusters of priorities across Canada: marketing/promotion (awareness, increased consciousness); vision and accountability; research, standards, and measurement; work force, learners, and learning culture; delivery, dissemination, and field development; and partnerships. For each priority, participants generated three or four issues in the form of questions that could generate results. Participants examined priorities for these individual sectors: labor, business, government, research, joint/national groups, and practitioner/coordinators. Each sector identified three or four priority issues that were specific to that sector. Again, the issues were in the form of questions that could generate results. Following the 10-page narrative, each sector priority issue is analyzed according to the following: (1) why this is an issue; (2) initial steps that would address this issue (including who is responsible and start and finish dates); and (3) what might hinder the implementation of these steps. Appendixes include two lists of needs--those participants believed had yet to be addressed across all sectors and those that had already been addressed across all sectors; consultation agenda; evaluation summary; and participant list.
