About Britt-Marie Apelgren

Professor of Language Education at the Faculty of Education.

Research interests: My primary research field concerns teachers' and students' perceptions and experiences of language teaching. My theoretical framework is constructivist influenced by Personal Construct Psychology (PCP). 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), teaching and learning in higher education and academic leadership.

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