Sandra Zappa-Hollman

Co-Investigator

Sandra is Associate Professor & Director of Academic English Programming at UBC. Her research draws on sociocultural theories to examine the experiences of multilingual higher education students as they interact with various academic discourse socialization agents in English-medium settings. Her main motivation to engage in such projects is to generate insights that contribute to a heightened understanding of the challenges and affordances of diverse learners, hoping this knowledge will lead to fostering and supporting practices grounded in asset-oriented ideologies that value multilingualism, multiculturalism, and diversity across all aspects of identity as resources for the individual and society at large.  Sandra enjoys outdoor adventures and contemplating nature.
