On Monday afternoon, 5 December 2016, we held a roundtable event focused on ‘Teen Reading in the Digital Era’ for stakeholders and potential members of a steering group.
We presented what we’ve learnt about teen reading practices so far, and began to explore policy implications for stakeholders in libraries, schools, and public sector organisations. Representatives from various industry and public sector groups joined us for the discussion of core issues for ongoing research about Australian teenagers and reading in the age of digitisation. A selection of images from the afternoon are presented here:
This event was held at our striking corporate centre at the Burwood (Melbourne) campus of Deakin University. Architectural images of this facility are shown here.
