Virtual Team Teaching is Gaining Ground in the Regions

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec is a bastion of the French language where students have few authentic opportunities to engage in English conversation with Anglophones or English-speaking Allophones.
