Centre for Multiliteracies

Literacy in New Times

Situated in a picturesque part of the Niagara escarpment, the Centre for Multiliteracies explores ways of expanding pratices and understandings of literacy in the 21st century. With CFI-funded laboratories in the CFI-funded Centre for Multiliteracies, the Centre investigates reading, writing, communicating, videogaming, teaching and assessing students through different technologies, immersive environments and printed texts. 

The Centre for Multiliteracies at Brock University and the Brock University Reading Clinic are under the direction of Jennifer Rowsell
