LSIA lecture: Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock
Published: Tuesday 21st June 2016
The Learning Sciences Institute Australia Professorial Fellow Professor Karen Harris will present a lecture "Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock" in Brisbane on 30 June on why most 5 to 18 year old students in multiple countries across the world today need support in learning to write.
Instruction that helps our students develop powerful composition strategies for planning, drafting, and revising; understandings of genres and the writing process; self-regulation of the writing process; and positive attitudes about writing and themselves as writers is critical.
Professor Karen R. Harris is the Warner Professor of Education at the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University. She is also a Professorial Fellow at LSIA.
When: 3pm to 5pm, 30 June
Where: Cathedral House, 229 Elizabeth St, Brisbane
