Hey G! An Examination of how English Language Learning Visible Minority High School Youths Experience the intersection of race and Second Language Learning (Carène Pierre René)

 This study seeks to explore how English language learning (ELL) visible minority youth from immigrant families living in Ottawa, experience the intersections of ‘race’ and second language learning in after school youth programs. Despite the fact that race is a socially constructed notion which has subsequently become discredited as having no biological basis, the concept continues to impact youths’ linguistic identities. Within the Canadian context, few programs have been established to support ELL visible minority students to address race issues. As a result, there is a need for a bridge between the academic situation and the after school one.

Creating Engaging Conference Posters

Date and Time: Thursday, January 8th at 1PM-3PM

Location: LMX 477

Presenter: Heather Woods & Maud Mediell

Language of Presentation: English and French

Registration: https://goo.gl/forms/SVormMD51Eyd2gj13

Conference season is coming! Posters are a great opportunity to provide a snapshot of your proposed, in progress, or completed research. Additionally, posters are a great way to engage with others about your ideas and research. However, how do you get people to stop and chat about your poster/research? How do you even make a poster? How do you make a poster you can easily travel with for international conferences?

During this workshop we will discuss how to create a poster using Powerpoint. We will discuss tips for creating eye catching posters. The presenter will cover content, formatting, printing, and general tips and tricks.

Please bring your own laptop.

Due to the interactive nature of this workshop, it will not be available through adobe connect. Should you wish to receive a copy of the presentation and handouts please visit https://goo.gl/DB4rLY.
