The successful candidate will possess a PhD in education or a related field and must have an academic profile centred on practice and research in the area of multiliteracies. We are using the term multiliteracies to signal two things: 1) the ways in which literacy is a social practice shaped by context, culture, history, etc. so is multiple and plural (multi-literacies), and 2) an expansion of literacy from reading and writing alphabetic text to embrace multimodal forms of communication and understanding (eg., visual, aural, kinesthetic, gestural)  made possible  by technology and new media (such as video-production, digital storytelling, texting). It is expected that the successful candidate will contribute to one or more of the following content areas: English Language Arts, Reading Education, Children’s and/or Young Adult Literatures, New Literacy Studies, Critical Media Literacy, and Literacy in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts.

Responsibilities will include teaching and student-teaching supervision in our Bachelor of Education and Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning programs, as well as teaching and thesis supervision in our MA and PhD programs. The committee welcomes applicants with experience in elementary and/or secondary schools.
