dear friends and colleagues,

apologies for double posting; I sent a similar message yesterday, but  
have not seen it posted, so here an updated version:

down under in Australia, we have just established a new association  
representing professionals in the filed of Academic Language &  
Learning. It's the:

Association for Academic Language and Learning (AALL) Incorporated

Mission and goals
Mission:
AALL is committed to promoting and providing academic language and  
learning development through policies, practices and research that  
build, enhance and extend teaching and learning opportunities for all  
students and staff in tertiary education settings.
The goals of AALL are to:
•	facilitate communication and collaboration among AALL members and to  
provide a forum for the discussion of policy, practice and research,  
especially through channels such as unilearn and the association’s  
state-based affiliates,
•	work towards institutional environments which provide the highest  
quality of learning experiences for all students and for all staff,
•	support the development of core, disciplinary academic and  
professional skills and attributes in all tertiary education students,
•	foster the recognition of the academic nature of the work of language  
and learning development through individual and collaborative research  
within and across tertiary institutions nationally and internationally,
•	promote quality, diversity, internationalisation and flexibility in  
language and learning development,
•	use publications and conferences to inform the wider academic  
community about the philosophies and practices of language and learning  
development in tertiary education, and
•	act as a lobbying body on issues relevant to AALL  members.

Names of Centres/Units in our country vary considerably. Below is a  
complete list of 'ALL' centres at all Australian universities,  
including their web site which may refer to 'mission statements'.
