Bio

Dr. Jennifer J. MacDonald researches, publishes, and presents on topics at the intersection between critical applied linguistics, internationalization of higher education, and English for academic purposes (EAP). Her doctoral research at the UCL Institution of Education, London, tackled the challenges of language policies, politics and pedagogy in the linguistically-diverse context of internationalized Canadian higher education.

Her books include Academic Inquiry 1, Sentences and Paragraphs (with Marcia Kim, Oxford University Press, 2017) and Pedagogies in English for Academic Purposes: Teaching and Learning in International Contexts (with Carole MacDiarmid, Bloomsbury, forthcoming in 2021).

Dr. MacDonald is Director of English Language Studies at Dalhousie University, Halifax, where she leads a variety of programs in EAP, and teacher and faculty professional development. She participates in Dalhousie committees and initiatives in support of international students, academic language and literacy, and internationalization. She is also an adjunct faculty member in the Faculty of Education at Saint Mary’s University, and the Faculty of Education at Mount Saint Vincent University, both in Halifax.
