Faculty Governance Award for 2011: Katherine Kulick

My primary area of research is at the intersection of second language acquisition theory and foreign language teaching pedagogies.   The classroom is my laboratory for exploring language acquisition processes and the many factors that influence adult foreign language achievement and proficiency levels.  My research bridges the gap between the theories of foreign language acquisition and the real world classroom experience of language learners.  My work views the process from both the student and instructor perspectives and translates the findings into instructional strategies, techniques and course materials.
