Title: Research at the Centre for Educational Research on Languages and Literacies (CERLL) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT)
Author: Jennifer Shade Wilson
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Genetic Classification
Abstract: After more than 40 years as the Modern Language Centre, members of the Centre decided to rename ourselves as the Centre for Educational Research on Languages and Literacies (CERLL), to better reflect our current activities and interests. We officially launched the new name for the Centre at a reception on 22 October 2010, and produced a compilation of recent publications by members of the Centre to mark the event. Our interests in research and graduate studies remain fundamentally as they have been for decades, focused on theories and practices in teaching, learning, curriculum, assessment, and policies related to English and French as second or international languages as well as other international, minority, heritage, or indigenous languages. The name change does signal a broadening of perspectives to include research on various forms and types of literacies, though we do not claim to be ‘post-modern’ in doing so.
