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'. 00.
