Course themes

The annual course schedule comprises the following core units: theoretical foundations, methodological paradigms and international journal publishing. In addition, each year we identify an occasional theme. Since research in Applied Linguistics may have impact on professionals and practitioners in diverse fields, the theme for NORDPAL 2019 is Applied Linguistics and Ethics.

A key feature of our courses is to afford generous space for participants to present their ongoing research which receives critical and constructive feedback from lecturers and fellow participants. It is notable that participants sustain this level of engagement in each other’s work and in Applied Linguistics more generally beyond the annual event.
