Applied Linguistics Research Group

The ALG is made up of a dynamic group of researchers and doctoral scholars spanning SALIS and Fiontar agus Scoil na Gaeilge in DCU. Our research interests encompass diverse aspects of Applied Linguistics including:

  • Language teaching & learning
  • Language planning & policy at institutional, national and international levels
  • Language teacher attitudes and identity
  • Language pedagogy
  • Linguistic diversity in education

We publish widely in leading academic journals and our research is relevant to educational and governmental stakeholders.

Several of our members have been recently appointed to the editorial team of Teanga, the Journal of the Irish Association for Applied Linguistics
