Identifying Requirements and Gaps in French as a Second Language (FSL) Teacher Education: Recommendations and Guidelines
In 2020, CASLT launched a pan-Canadian research project aimed to identify ways to better equip new FSL teachers for success in the early stages of their careers.
The initiative is funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage as part of its FSL Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy.
Data analysis is complete and the final report will be published in March 2023. Share news about this exciting research with the hashtag #FSLTeacherEd!
