Centre for Language Education Research

About Us

We are a research centre founded by applied linguists, educationalists and social scientists committed to conducting research in language and education which makes a difference across local, national and international contexts.

Our members of international researchers celebrate diverse research interests in language, education and cross-cutting themes. Our shared research goals lie in the nexus of critical studies and language, learning, teaching and assessment.

Our expertise spans language assessment, literacy studies and multimodality, academic discourse, computer-assisted language learning, language materials development, heritage and minoritized language communities, bilingual education and multilingualism in educational contexts.

We join fellow thinkers in asking critical questions about the future of our ultra-social, superdiverse lives and the multiple semiotic means through which we communicate and learn.

We seek answers to them through collaborative research with colleagues across different disciplines and geopolitical locations, with other institutions, networks, organizations, associations, groups and practitioners

We do this through our research, education and training, and engagement and outreach activities.
