Alysse Weinberg Scholarship
 

INTRODUCTION

Alysse Weinberg, associate professor at the University of Ottawa’s Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (OLBI), created this award as part of her commitment to supporting the University’s French immersion program, the Institute and the Faculty of Arts.

Professor Weinberg began her career in modern languages in 1980 and then worked as a part-time professor at OLBI, eventually becoming a full-time permanent faculty member. As a language professor, she strives to motivate her students to broaden their horizons, develop a love of the language of Molière and deepen their French cultural knowledge.

Professor Weinberg has been involved with the immersion program since it was first introduced in 2006. She went on to specialize in teaching the accompanying language support courses for the immersion program, usually for history content courses. She has also conducted research and published on various aspects of immersion education at the university level.

 

PURPOSE OF FUND
