- About Deakin
Members of the TESOL/TLOTE team are all committed to helping teachers understand the socially situated nature of language use, language learning and language teaching. Members elaborate on that theme from different perspectives. From the perspective of language teaching, the impact of the learner's context on teachers' work is studied. The necessarily cross-cultural nature of language use, learning and teaching leads to elaboration on cross-cultural communication. Underpinning diversity in language and learner impact on language learning and teaching is the diversity of ways in which language itself can be described, whether considering English or languages other than English.
The TESOL/TLOTE enjoys the diversity of its areas of interests and of the students, from many countries in the world, which it teaches, and the students whom these students will teach.
The group welcomes enquiries from future HDR candidates, schools and the industry and business sector.
We invite you to contact any of our staff to discuss future collaborations.
