The Adult Literacy Toolkit is a set of lesson preparation and program development resources for instructors.

Kate Randell, MA App Ling, has worked in English language, Aboriginal education, and literacy classes for twenty years. She has worked at TAFE, RTOs and universities in Australia and overseas. She has a strong interest in evidence-based teaching strategies, and skill acquisition in early literacy development.


Guest Speakers:         Elaine Bell and Jan Thompson, Flinders University

                                            Transition to University: Supporting nursing students to develop their numeracy skills

Undergraduate nursing students have diverse backgrounds with varying basic numeracy skills. Some students enter university with limited numeracy skills requiring extensive assistance to bring them to a safe level for nursing practice. This study aimed to address all aspects of numeracy required for successful entry into the nursing profession. The intervention combined rigorous formative student assessment with individualised feedback and support in the first year undergraduate nursing program.

Elaine Bell is a Lecturer in Nursing at Flinders University. Prior to which she was the Nursing and Midwifery Education Director at the Women and Children’s Health Network. Jan Thompson is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Flinders University where she has been working for the past 25 years. She has been the Coordinator of the Undergraduate Nursing Programs for the past 8 years. Elaine and Jan are interested in transition to university for undergraduate nursing students with a particular lens on numeracy skills and how to scaffold these throughout the three year program.
