Pathway development from the Early Childhood Education college program to the Second Language Teaching university program

University of Ottawa
Reference Number

This project aimed to increase Francophone student mobility and access to postsecondary programs in French through the development of an efficient pathway from the Éducation en services à l’enfance program at La Cité to the BA spécialisé en Didactiques des langues secondes (DLS) offered by the University of Ottawa. The DLS program allows students to better understand the development and acquisition of languages in a plurilingual context. This training is very important for future early childhood educators and teachers at the elementary level, both in French-language as well as immersion schools in Ontario. The pathway developed as part of this project will therefore be very beneficial to graduates of the Éducation en services à l’enfance program who want to pursue a Bachelor of Education after the DLS program.
