Better communication and learning in the classroom. Measuring the effect of teacher training on children’s language skills.

Project: Dissertation

Project Details


My PhD studies are part of a project with the overall aim to enhance communication fostering classroom environments in the mainstream setting.

The project implements an in-service teacher training program introducing evidence-based language learning interaction and modification techniques to primary-school teachers. We evaluate the effect of changes in teaching behaviour on student language ability.

My research is also on language development, in particular, vocabulary development, in the early school years and how it's affected by schooling.
