Researcher and teacher educator in adult literacy and numeracy and TESOL, University of Technology Sydney

Keiko Yasukawa is a researcher and teacher educator in the School of International Studies and Education. Her research focuses on the tensions between policy, practice and pedagogy in adult literacy and numeracy. For many years, she has worked with practitioners as a strong policy activist for an adult literacy and numeracy policy that recognises adult education as a public good and a social responsibility, and which supports programs that address the broad range of personal, social and economic needs and goals of adult learners. She is a co-editor of Beyond economic interests: Critical perspectives on adult literacy and numeracy in a globalised world (2016, Sense Publishers) and Numeracy as a social practice: Global and local perspectives (2018, Routledge).
