Welcome back to the TEFLology Podcast – a podcast all about teaching English as a foreign language, and related matters.
Today we bring you an interview with Dr. Ema Ushioda.
Ema is the director of the Centre of Applied Linguistics at the University of Warwick.
Her research interests include language, culture and identity, and particularly motivational perspectives on engaging with different languages and cultures, as well as issues of motivation and autonomy in language learning and their implications for classroom practice and teacher education.
She has authored books including Teaching and Researching Motivation, with Zoltan Dornyei, and edited books including International Perspectives on Motivation.
Rob got the chance to speak to Ema at the 3rd Psychology of Language Learning conference, held at Waseda University in Tokyo, earlier this summer.
Rob asked questions to Ema about motivation research. We hope you enjoy the interview.
