BIO
Lourdes Ortega’s main area of research is in second language acquisition, particularly socio-cognitive and educational dimensions in adult classroom settings. She has also long-standing interests in second language writing and foreign language education and has published widely about systematic research synthesis and epistemological and ethical dimensions of second language acquisition research. In the last few years she has become interested in applying insights from bilingualism and from usage-based linguistics to the investigation of second language development. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Hawaii (2000) and has been a doctoral Mellon fellow (1999), a postdoctoral Spencer/National Academy of Education fellow (2003), and a senior research fellow at the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies (2010). Her publications include the books Understanding Second Language Acquisition (Hodder, 2009; revised edition forthcoming with Routledge in 2016) and Technology-Mediated TBLT: Researching Technology and Tasks (with Marta González-Lloret; John Benjamins, 2014). She served as area editor for “Language Learning and Teaching” for the Wiley Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics (2013), and she was the editor of Language Learning for the five-year term of 2010-2015.
