ILA 2018 Research Institute: Our All-Keynote Format Is Back!

By Maureen McLaughlin
 | Jun 06, 2018

Research InstituteBack for its fifth year, the International Literacy Association (ILA) 2018 Research Institute is better than ever.

Nationally renowned researchers, innovative topics, practical connections to teaching, and the return of our all-keynote format await participants on Institute Day at the ILA 2018 Conference, July 20, in Austin, TX. Organized by the Literacy Research Panel, research into practice is the foundation of the ILA 2018 Research Institute: Best Practices in the Teaching of Reading.

This year’s topics range from early literacy to adolescent and disciplinary literacies, from student motivation and engagement to visible learning, and from STEM and the English language arts to the critical importance of small-group instruction.

All presentations will contribute to participants’ deeper understanding of multiple facets of literacy and, in particular, to their knowledge of reading comprehension.

Participants will have the unique opportunity to learn from and work with leading experts in the field. This year’s line-up of presenters includes Douglas Fisher, Nell Duke, John Guthrie, Jacy Ippolito, Evan Ortlieb, Ernest Morrell, Ray Reutzel, Denise Johnson, and P. David Pearson, who will deliver a special presentation titled “Literacy Research for Trying Times.”

Bridging research, theory, and practice, the course is designed to encourage collaboration among researchers, educators, teacher educators, reading specialists, literacy coaches, special educators, and other literacy roles. Attendees will learn about the latest research findings and discuss how to translate those concepts into classroom pedagogy.

The ILA 2018 Research Institute is one of 10 courses offered at Institute Day, an exciting way to kick off ILA’s annual conference. Please join us for what promises to be another focused, fast-tracked day of learning.

Maureen McLaughlin is a past president of the International Reading Association (now the International Literacy Association) and a department chair and professor of reading education at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania. She will present at the ILA 2018 Research Institute at the ILA 2018 Conference, July 20–23, in Austin, TX. Visit to learn more and register.
