Research interests: language learning and pedagogy; immersion education; teacher professional development
My research primarily investigates language learning and pedagogy in content-based instructional settings. Specific interests include cross-linguistic and plurilingual pedagogies, language awareness, content and language integration, classroom interaction, peer collaboration, and L2 socialization. Current projects examine immersion teacher education and professional development across Canada, collaboration for cross-linguistic instruction between teachers in a Chinese-English bilingual school, and university course instructors’ awareness of students’ needs for language and academic literacy support.
