The Unit for Academic Language and Practice offers courses and conducts research on language use in academic contexts with a specific emphasis on the uses of Norwegian and English for research and teaching purposes.
The Unit for Academic Language and Practice seeks to support academic literacies development among teaching and research staff in higher education institutions.
Our teaching and research draw from the areas of English for Academic Purposes, Norwegian as a Second Language, Norwegian in academic and professional contexts, rhetoric and writing studies, and teaching in higher education in intercultural and multilingual contexts.
