Dr Bhatt’s research and teaching interests lie at the intersections of applied linguistics (including TESOL), literacy studies, and educational research. Much of this recently has been concerned with digital literacy and writing, and these interests emerge through his 2017 book 'Assignments as Controversies: Digital Literacy & Writing in Classroom Practice’ (Routledge).
This research includes a recent project examining the changing nature and critical tensions surrounding the writing practices and knowledge creating work of academics across contemporary Higher Education.
In his current research project Dr Bhatt is examining the digital literacies and assignment writing strategies of undergraduate students in different universities. This is a cross-disciplinary study and is funded by the Society for Research into Higher Education.
