In time for International Literacy Day, Literacy Quebec has launched LQ Academy, a collection of eLearning courses.
LQ Academy consists of the newly revamped Literacy 101: Exploring Literacy; Literacy 102: Supporting adults with low literacy; Lit 103: Clear Language and Design; and the Health Assessment add-on.
Literacy Quebec has split its original Literacy and Clear Language 101 into three foundational courses with added content.
“Splitting up the courses and providing additional information gives users more flexibility in choosing what is most useful to them,” says Margo Legault, Executive Director. “We’ve received great feedback from people who have taken our original Literacy & Clear Language 101. We hope the bite-sized format and interactive content will make learning engaging and accessible to a broader audience.”
LQ Academy’s foundational courses are designed for anyone who interacts with the general public and wishes to adapt their services, publications and communications to reach more people with varying degrees of literacy skills.
A course on Family Literacy will be added in the coming months.
“We’re really excited about the new look and about the possibility of creating new courses,” says Legault. “Literacy goes beyond reading and writing. It is a complex subject matter that affects all aspects of a person’s life. We’re happy to be offering lifelong learning opportunities to those interested in learning more.”
Literacy Quebec is a network that connects and represents community-based literacy organizations to empower people, impact lives and build a stronger society.
