Dr Deniz Ortactepe Hart

  • Lecturer in TESOL (School of Education)

Biography

I recently joined the University of Glasgow in September 2022 as a Lecturer in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Over the past 11 years, I have worked in Turkey, the United States, and the UK training teachers of English, Spanish, French, Chinese, and Arabic. Educational research methods, second language acquisition, language assessment, social justice language education, and language teaching methodology are some of the courses I have taught regularly so far.

Research interests

My main research interests revolve around social justice language education: teaching languages for diversity, equity, inclusion, and social transformation. Since 2018, I have been carrying out the Social Justice in ELT project in Turkey and have organized two symposiums on Social Justice and Language Education (www.socialjusticeinelt.com). I have also been collaborating with the Migrant Education Office since 2019 to provide culturally sustaining pedagogies to the children of farm workers in Monterey Country, California. My book, Social justice and the language classroom: A resource book for reflection, action, and transformation is due to be published by the Edinburgh University Press in March 2023.
