Associate Professor emeritus Linguistics, English Department.
Senior Researcher ACLC
Guest Editor Special Issue
I am guest editor of a special issue of the open access journal Languages, together with Jet Van Dam. Title of the issue: Institutional Discourse and the Covid-19 Pandemic: Challenges and Opportunities. Below the call for papers.
Call for Papers
My research interests include (institutional) discourse studies, teacher education, second/foreign language learning, anthropology of education and intercultural communication. I am coordinator of the ACLC research group Institutional Discourse.
Educational Ethnography: Everyday Practices This project aims to develop a (critical) discourse-based framework for the description and analysis of multiparty task-oriented interactions in secondary and higher education classrooms. We zoom in on dimensions of teacher and students’ behaviors that often pass under the radar of traditional research paradigms and observation categories (see also our website under construction: Competences in context).
Principal researchers: Anne Bannink and Jet Van Dam
Educational Ethnography: Teacher Education
In this project student teachers collect video data of authentic teaching/learning situations and reflect on constraints and affordances of the institutional discourses they are part of. Rather than focusing on discrete dimensions of the classroom interface we invite them to adopt a more integrated, holistic view and become researchers of their own teaching practice.

Discourses in medical settings (PhD project). This study evaluates the effect of a screening tool for psychological stress in head and neck cancer patients by analyzing discussions between patient and physician during outpatient consultations (video data; institutional data; interview data).Principal researcher: Manon van der Laaken.
Digital discourses and interdiscursivity in educational settings. This project critically examines claims about the role of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) on L2 clasrooms. Principal researchers: Anne Bannink and Rose van der Zwaard
Technology in Teacher Education. In this project we explore the constraints and affordances of digital video for reflection in preservice and inservice teacher education settings (secondary and higher education). Principal researchers: Anne Bannink and Rose van der Zwaard

Competenties in Context
Together with Jet Van Dam I have developed a discourse-based framework for the analysis of task-oriented interactions at school and at the university. Competencies in Context, an electronic learning environment for university teachers, applies these theoretical notions to authentic video data: actual lectures taught by experienced teachers at the University of Amsterdam. The website is used as a teaching tool in the BKO (Basic Teacher Qualification) course of the Faculty of Humanities and is very much a work in progress.
