CL2C uOttawa

Welcome to the cL2c!

Welcome to the Second Language Education Cohort! This cohort is comprised of a team of P/J and I/S division candidates and professors interested in language learning across the curriculum. The cohort has two options – French as a second language (FSL) and English as a second language (ESL).  Candidates taking the P/J and I/S FSL program option are automatically enrolled in this cohort. All members will have a chance to participate in extra-curricular opportunities and discuss important developments in the fields of FSL and ESL education in Ontario and Canada. Whenever possible, activities will be open to candidates in both FSL and ESL options (e.g., bilingual workshops offered simultaneously in French and English). We look forward to welcoming P/J and I/S candidates to the cohort and working with all B.Ed. students interested in learning more about second language education this coming year!

FSL Research Opportunity

Are you a first-year teacher candidate in the French as a Second Language (FSL) teacher education program? Want to share your voice and help enhance the program?

If your answer is yes then you are invited to participate in our research study entitled FSL Teacher Recruitment and Retention: Perspectives from two Ontario Faculties of Education. The purpose of the study is to gain insights into FSL teachers’ recruitment criteria. Your voice will inform the ongoing development of FSL teacher education in Ontario.

The study is being conducted by Dr. Stephanie Arnott and Dr. Marie-Emilie (Mimi) Masson of the Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa. Participating will have no impact on your academic standing or your relationship with the researchers/professors as all responses will be kept confidential and will not be identifiable by your professor(s). You will complete an online survey (in English) on your entry profile into the teacher education program. The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to fill out and you will have a two week window to finish the survey.

If you have any questions about the study please contact us at
