Conference of the Canadian Association of Applied Linguistics (CAAL)
About the conference
Come to ACLA/CAAL for cutting-edge information about the teaching and learning of second languages -- Official, Indigenous, Heritage and "Other" -- all across Canada. Researchers, program and curriculum developers, teacher-practitioners and second language learners alike will all find something of interest for them. Our keynote speakers will address urgent contemporary issues in applied linguistics , such as the current push to include critical anti-racist pedagogy and multilingual/plurilingual teaching approaches in second language classrooms. As Canada's population becomes ever more diverse, so does second language pedagogy! And research follows suit.
