Dr. Amanda Lanier is the director of the FLT graduate programs at Michigan State University and faculty in the Center for Language Teaching Advancement. She is an applied linguist who focuses on social and cultural aspects of language learning, teacher cognition, and corpus-based analysis of language in use.
Her PhD dissertation, completed at Georgia State University, focused on identity, culture, literacy, and investment in young learners of Arabic, and she remains committed to promoting less-commonly-taught languages (LCTLs) and heritage language learning in the U.S. as well as advocacy and engagement with research among teachers of all world languages.
Over the last decade, she has designed and taught courses on Methods of FLT, Culture (and Interculturality) in FL Courses, Foreign/Second Language Acquisition, Sociolinguistics and Spoken Language, Literacy and Biliteracy, Language Concepts (Pedagogical Grammar), and, most recently, Program Development and Administration. She has extensive experience in online learning and teaching and ensures that instructional technology is integrated effectively into the content and delivery of all FLT courses.
Further resources including her professional portfolio, links to presentations and publications, and recommendations on language teaching, teacher development, and online learning can be found on her personal website.
