2017 ALWC Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sarah Creider
Dr. Sarah Creider
Sarah Creider is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Multilingual Multicultural Studies at New York University. She received an EdD in Applied Linguistics from Teachers College, Columbia University, and has taught in the TESOL and Applied Linguistics programs at Teachers College and at Hunter College. An applied linguist, Sarah uses conversation analysis to discover concrete methods for bringing student voices into the classroom. In particular, she is interested in sequential and simultaneous analyses of talk, gesture, body position, and objects in educational environments. Most recently, she has looked at how entrenched patterns of teacher-student interaction can shift when teachers avoid asking questions. She also specializes in second-language pedagogy for adult students with limited first language literacy. Her work has been published in the Journal of Contemporary Foreign Language Studies; Learning, Culture, & Social Interaction; Discourse Studies; Language and Information Society; the Journal of Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice; and Working Papers in TESOL & Applied Linguistics. She was co-chair of the first and fourth annual meetings of the Language and Social Interaction Working Group (LANSI) at Teaches College, Columbia University.
