About Heather Willis Allen

Welcome to my website. In addition to teaching French and applied linguistics courses and supervising Teaching Assistants of French, I am a researcher with three primary interests:
• The multiliteracies framework and its use in collegiate foreign language instruction and assessment;
Foreign language teacher cognition and development and their relation to professional development experiences;
• the motivational trajectories of collegiate foreign language learners and how instruction can support goal-setting, reflection, and motivation maintenance.
