Dr Lucas Santos is a lecturer and a researcher at the Monash Intercultural Lab. Dr Santos started his career as a language educator in Brazil, where he completed his teaching qualifications. He taught English as an additional language for over 10 years in language schools and English for academic purposes in Australia. A central focus of Dr Santos teaching and research career has been on leveraging how educators can enable meaningful learning that taps into the diverse identities’ learners enact both in and out of classrooms.
Since completing his PhD, which investigated how young Brazilians enact different identities in digital practices based on their sociocultural backgrounds, Dr Santos has focused on exploring how individuals develop intercultural capabilities that allow them to navigate diversity in personal and professional contexts. His current research interests can be broadly grouped under the following topics:
- Intercultural competence and capabilities for professional learning and development
- Intercultural teaching and learning in higher education
- Digital literacies and the co-construction of identities in social and political discourses
- Higher education teaching and learning scholarship.
