The Unit’s activities are based on research with relevance for academic language and its role in knowledge creating processes within higher education. ASK engages in questions around academic writing and language related to teaching and learning as well as to students’ everyday work in higher education, including for example text-based advising. Such questions occur within the university just as well as within society as a whole. The Unit engages with local, regional, national, and international contexts where academic writing and language development are considered and problematized.
