Personal profile


Alex Kostogriz is Professor in Languages and TESOL Education at the Faculty of Education, Monash University. He has previously held leadership positions at Deakin University and Australian Catholic University. Alex’s research is based on sociocultural approaches to learning and teaching and centres on two overarching goals. The first is to understand the conditions by which students' involvement in various classroom practices is shaped, and how such involvement affects both what is learned and how it is learned. The second is to use this understanding to help create effective classroom communities of learners and inform teaching practices. Alex's current research projects focus on the professional practice and ethics of language teachers, teacher education and experiences of beginning teachers.
