Our ongoing seminar series ‘Global perspectives of innovative languages education’ was established in 2014 and each year features eminent scholars in the field alongside Deakin academics specialising in EAL/D and TESOL. The CTaLL seminar series has been consolidated into an edited volume Rethinking Languages Education: Directions, Challenges and Innovations.
Members of CTaLL are committee members of key state and national organisations including the Modern Language Teachers Association (MLTAV) and the Australia Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA). CTaLL members are also editors of TESOL in Context – a key journal for Australian TESOL educators.
The centre also facilitates the delivery of professional learning activities for teachers including languages pedagogy short courses for community languages teachers, workshops with national and international facilitators, as well as the curation of education resource blog The Language Teacher Helpmate.
