Linda Bradley

Senior Lecturer in applied IT: Gothenburg University

Linda Bradley has a great interest in digitally-mediated environments. In April, 2013, she finished her PhD within the area of Computer Assisted Language Learning. The focus in her thesis was student collaboration, communication and intercultural learning in web-based environments within English for Specific Purposes (ESP) in higher education.
Currently, Linda works as a Senior Lecturer at Chalmers University of Technology, Department of Applied IT, the Division for Language and Communication. She mainly teaches scientific writing and ESP courses for computer science and engineering students. Linda has a background as a teacher, holding a Master’s degree in languages and a Bachelor’s degree in information technology.

Presently, Linda is engaged in different projects concerning digital technologies and learning. One such project is the three-year LangOER network, investigating the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) in less used European languages. Another project is the two-year ExplOERer project promoting OER sustainability through adoption and re-use of OER in professional practice. A third project is the two-year M-Lang project which concerns mobile enhanced tools and approaches for innovative language learning and assessment. In addition, she is also a member of the Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction, and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society (LinCS) at the University of Gothenburg, financed by the Swedish Research Council.

Linda is engaged as a reviewer for the annual EUROCALL proceedings, as well as being a reviewer for the journals, CALICO, ReCALL and Taiwan International ESP Journal. Recently, she was also appointed vice-president for the non-profit publishing association Research-Publishing.net, committed to making edited collections of research papers a freely available public resource.
