Hi, my name is Shakina Rajendram and I'm an Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream and the Coordinator of the Language Teaching Field in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning at OISE, University of Toronto. I graduated with my PhD in Language & Literacies Education and a collaborative specialization in Comparative, International & Development Education from OISE in 2019, a Master of Arts with Distinction in Special Needs Education from the University of Nottingham, England in 2013, and a Bachelor of Education with First Class Honours in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Exeter, England in 2010. I have over 12 years of experience teaching linguistically and culturally diverse students in the K-12 and higher education levels. My current research focuses on teacher education and supporting multilingual learners through translanguaging and multiliteracies pedagogies.
