Originating at Macquarie University, MultiLit Pty Ltd has become a major force for effective literacy instruction in Australia.
For 25 years, MultiLit has provided assistance to tens of thousands of students in a variety of settings, including schools, our own Literacy Centres, and community-based literacy projects across Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
As a result of being a research initiative of Macquarie University, MultiLit’s publications, professional development and Literacy Centre are continually informed by an ongoing program of research. The research team is led by Emeritus Professor Kevin Wheldall AM. Recognising the valuable contribution of this research, MultiLit was featured by Universities Australia in its 2019 ‘Universities Research Changes Lives‘ campaign.
In 2006, MultiLit Pty Ltd was founded by Professor Kevin Wheldall, Dr Robyn Wheldall and Iain Rothwell. MultiLit Pty Ltd is a spin-off company of Macquarie University, following on from a program of research since 1995.
