This is the final issue of the Daily for Critical Literacies 2010. In it, we wrap up the last of the recordings and posts. And please be sure to complete the course survey, below - this is an important part of our research and we really need your contributions.

We'll keep the list open, just in case, until the end of July. On July 31, the names will be removed from the database. Thank you for your participation, and we hope you enjopyed the course.

Final Course Survey

Greetings from the NRC PLE researcher,

Enjoy your summer!

Helene Fournier
