Marie-Émilie (Mimi) Masson is professor (long-term appointment) at the University of Ottawa. She teaches French, English, second language learning theories and second/foreign language pedagogy. She has worked in the public and private sectors in Japan and Canada, as a teacher and curriculum developer, with learners ranging from younger students (e.g., kindergarten, junior high school) to adults (e.g., university students, professionals). Her doctoral research in Language and Literacy Education, completed at the University of Toronto (OISE), explored how professional learning networks can support Canadian French as a second language (FSL) teacher well-being by providing opportunities to network, build community, develop their professional identities and foster leadership skills.
