Paule Desgroseilliers receives Dean's Convocation Medal
Dr. Paule Desgroseilliers' thesis, Étude des représentations du bilinguisme et du français langue seconde chez des apprenants en Colombie-Britannique, is a masterwork which distills all of the experiences of her long and distinguished career as a professional educator and administrator of French language programs in BC.
Dr. Cécile Sabatier, her supervisor, says, "By giving voice to all the agents of change (students, teachers, educational leaders, parents), Paule's research goes beyond a simple matter of looking for something that works, and aims to understand why and how it works. Her work has the potential to help educators make informed judgements that will generate improvements in teaching and learning."
After successfully defending her thesis, Dr. Desgroseilliers relocated to Montréal, her hometown. She says, "I am taking some reflection time to determine which area in education I'd like invest my time and expertise. In the interim, I am studying Spanish, auditing courses in the School of Irish Studies at Concordia and volunteering with a children's reading support organization."
On behalf of SFU, we congratulate Dr. Paule Desgroseilliers on her outstanding achievements which are being recognized with the award of the Dean of Graduate Studies Convocation Medal as one of SFU's most outstanding graduate students from the Faculty of Education.
