The following blog post was written by Jennifer Caswell, Community Liaison Officer at the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement.
In conjunction with the October 10, 2017 college-wide meeting day, the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement's (CEIIA) Research and Development team welcomed English Language Learning (ELL) instructors and administrators to a showcase to learn more about our team, our work, and our support for English language learning at Bow Valley College and beyond.
After a short program with remarks from President Laura Jo Gunter, Dr. Misheck Mwaba, Vice President Academic, and Dean Elza Bruk, the 80+ people in attendance were invited to explore a casual information session showcasing 10 of the team’s most recent projects ranging from supporting teacher training to developing language instruction to enhancing civic engagement.
Over the course of an hour, the interactive session with four stations, staffed by team members who worked on the projects, shared how the team works to assess, develop, create, and share accessible resources for instructors and learners as well as college-wide and external stakeholders.
Thanks to the team’s diverse background, Research and Development excels at working in a manner that puts people at the heart of all aspects of our diverse projects. The entire team works closely with a range of technology and is supported by the expertise and the experience to leverage relationships to deliver effective, accessible resources for instructors and learners.
Research and Development is committed to supporting ELL training, and we welcome you to keep up with us and our work by joining a growing network of ELL professionals as a CEIIA member.
