- The ARC Linkage Project, Maximising Australia's Language Resources, focuses on languages study and use in Sydney and Wollongong and is exploring the 'spaces' between policy and local practices. It involves state and local cross-sectoral program mapping, studies of teachers, young people and parents and the development of language profiles which reflect local resources.
- Research and development in Community Languages. We have developed and evaluated professional development programs for teachers in Community Languages Schools and we are working on similar initiatives for school principals and administrators. A research network of doctoral students has also developed around community languages.
- Integrating Language and Content. This project will explore secondary school disciplines and the cultural/ linguistic affordances for EALD learners. It builds on the previous ARC Linkage, Challenging pedagogies and also my work (with Pauline Jones) in the research and development of the Teaching English Language Learners (TELL) professional development.
