New semester & other news

Tomorrow is the first day of classes for Fall 2014. It’s also my first semester back to a regular load after sabbatical. I did teach an intensive course in July 2014 but it was in Saskatoon and somehow didn’t quite feel like being back to school.  I’m teaching two sections of an undergraduate course on the topic of linguistic diversity in schools.

A few bits of news in my world. I’m now the vice president of the Canadian Association of Applied Linguistics/ L’Association canadienne de linguistique appliquée (CAAL/ACLA). ACLA and the American Association for Applied Linguistics are holding a joint 2015 conference in Toronto from March 21-24. I’ve been involved this summer with conference planning. I’m learning a lot already and am enjoying the experience.

And I’m off to Calgary on Thursday for the Language Policy and Planning conference at the U of C. I’ll be giving a paper with one of my PhD students, Cindy Nelson.
