About Britt-Marie Apelgren

Professor in Language Education at the Faculty of Education.

Vice-head of department for dotoral studies at the department of education and sepcial education

Research interests My primary research field concerns teachers' and students' perceptions and experiences of language teaching. My theoretical framework is constructivist, primarily influenced by personal construct psychology. Other research areas involve students' language skills in English and teachers' assessment practices, as well as research in the area of content and language integrated learning (CLIL) and teaching and learning in higher education.

Educational interests I teach and supervise primarily in the field of language education, with a focus on learning in English.
