Heejin Song is an assistant professor in the ESL program at the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics (DLLL), York University, Canada. Her recent research interests lie in critical action research in the ELT contexts of English for academic purposes (EAP) and content and language integrated learning (CLIL) as well as critical discourse analyses of curricula, educational materials and media in ELT and multicultural education.
In her teaching, she advocates for perspectives of diversity as an asset and empowerment for teaching and learning structured and practiced in a way that honors learners’ existing linguistic, cultural, and academic knowledge. Furthermore, while embracing multiliteracies pedagogy, critical pedagogy, and multicultural education for social justice in teaching, she continuously attempts to exemplify how instructional design and teaching with critical consciousness can enhance not only learners’ academic knowledge and skills essential for their disciplinary and professional fields but also help learners become conscious and inclusive global participants.
