Language in Learning
The priority area Language in Learning is under establishment.
Østfold University College’s strategic plan for the period 2019–2022 states that the university college shall «establish ‘Language in learning’ as a strategic research programme». This is an important choice of direction for the R&D work at Østfold University College (ØUC) and it supports the ambition of taking on « a leading national role in languages in education».
Østfold University College has a well-established and large academic and research environment which cover these languages: Norwegian, English, French, Spanish and German.
The Faculty of Business, Languages, and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Education and The Norwegian National Centre for Foreign Languages in Education (The Foreign Language Centre) work together to establish the research programme.
