CAMERISE is an initiative originally driven by a team at York University’s Glendon Campus.
Camerise, or haskap in English, is a small and super nutritious berry with a subtle and complex flavour. They grow in clusters and can be eaten fresh or made into a variety of desserts. The plant is very hardy and flourishes in North American climates.
This delicious small fruit represents the vision of our hub project for French as a second language in Canada: to offer students, educators, researchers, and administrators a space to collaborate for the sustainability of FSL/FLA-teaching programs in Canada.
Our objective is to ensure all FSL/FLA stakeholders in Canada have access to inclusive and engaging open educational resources and collaborative tools as well as the support they need to reach their full potential as bilingual or plurilingual Canadians.
Come to our hub and enjoy the contributions from FSL/FLA stakeholders’, help nourish the transformation of the field with your energy, and be part of an ever blossoming community of practice.
