Identifying Requirements and Gaps in French as a Second Language (FSL) Teacher Education: Recommendations and Guidelines
CASLT has launched a two-year research project that aims 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.
Surveys and focus groups are now closed and we have moved into the data analysis phase. Stay tuned to learn about findings from this project.
