The 1999 ACER Research Conference, titled: Improving Literacy Learning: What does the research tell us? was held from 18-19 October 1999 at the Stamford Grand, Glenelg, South Australia. A number of recent research studies have provided important new insights into literacy learning in schools. This conference, organised by the Australian Council for Educational Research, brings together leading literacy researchers to review the current state of knowledge on ways of improving literacy learning. Outstanding international and national literacy researchers will review:
