Dr. Enrica Piccardo, Head of CERLL

As head of the Centre for Educational Research on Languages and Literacies (CERLL), formerly known as the Modern Language Centre (MLC), I warmly welcome you to our web site. CERLL focuses onlanguage and literacy teaching and addresses a broad spectrum of theoretical and practical issues related to second, minority and majority learning. Since the establishment of the MLC in 1968, the quality and range of the Centre’s graduate studies programs, research and development projects, and dissemination services have brought it both national and international recognition. Our work focuses on curriculum, instruction, and policies for education in second, foreign, minority, and majority languages, particularly in reference to English and French in Canada but also other languages and settings — including studies of language learning, literacy, methodology and organization of classroom instruction, language education policies, student and program evaluation, teacher development, as well as issues related to bilingualism, multi/plurilingualism, and cultural diversity. 

I am excited to share the launch of our revamped CERLL web page. Please return regularly as we update our content.
