Home of Ania Lian

Dr. Ania Lian is a lecturer in Teaching and Learning at Charles Darwin University (CDU) and member of the Editorial Board of the Rangsit Journal of Arts and Sciences (Bangkok, Thailand) and the AsiaCALL journal. Since 1993, Ania has held lecturing positions at various universities in Australia, with her work focusing on the use of technology in second language learning and in education in general, including software development. She has also worked at the National Policy Office of the Council on the Ageing in Canberra and has a history of working on a voluntary basis, as a Project Leader, with the wider community on sustainability projects within the framework of the Queanbeyan Business Council, NSW. Ania has been a keynote speaker at a number of national conferences and, more recently, in Asia, where she engages in building collaborative networks between the CDU and other universities, with the aim of expanding the international focus of all involved. The leading objective of her teaching and research is to explore the concept of inclusive learning environments, with a specific focus on learner-centredness. Her recent interest in graduate attributes develops from these concerns which form the framework of her approach.

My Research - The intellectual framework which informs my second language teaching and research builds on the cognitive and sociocultural approaches in Second Language Acquisition studies. However, it also expands the concepts informing those approaches by building on the body of work of critical social theory and, as a result, is part of a newly emerging approach referred to as critical pedagogy. In my research, I use the concepts of critique or dialogue (Latour, B.; Calhoun, C.) as involving conditions enabling differences to be engaged. In this sense, I concern myself with identifying conditions that provide students with a multitude of feedback-generating avenues, thus stimulating interaction between students’ systems of perception and those of others. In this interactive environment, I see the role of my research as assisting students in approaching their learning from the perspective of the questions which they themselves experience in the context of their learning, without replacing those questions with those of their teachers or theory.
