Educational Linguistics (EDU)

Research in educational linguistics focuses on language-related issues that emerge from or have implications for educational practice including but not limited to classroom teaching. Accordingly, educational linguists begin with a practical issue and then look to relevant theories and methods needed to fully understand it. A hallmark of educational linguistics is multidimensional inquiry, recognizing the value of investigating language (in) education phenomena in dynamic social context. Empirical and theoretical work is characterized by transdisciplinary approaches to account for the intersection of relevant societal, interpersonal, and intrapersonal dimensions that mediate the development of linguistic repertoires in settings of formal and informal education across the lifespan.
