- support innovative pedagogical approaches to authentic and autonomous language learning;
- generate and analyze research data related to linguistic risk-taking;
- engage in various training and knowledge dissemination activities;
- establish national and international partnerships with like-minded researchers and institutions who seek to promote bilingualism and multilingualism in various contexts; and
- integrate interdisciplinary perspectives from applied linguistics, education, psychology, health sciences, and beyond.
