Dr Yvette Slaughter
Yvette Slaughter teaches and researches language and literacy education, with a focus on language policy in education and research methodologies in second language education.
Before moving to the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, Yvette worked as a researcher at the Faculty of Arts’ Research Unit for Multilingualism and Cross Cultural Communication. Her work across the two faculties has allowed her to engage with a range of areas from multiple perspectives, including second language teaching and learning, bilingualism and bilingual education, language program implementation and evaluation, and the use of ICT in program delivery and teaching practices.
Yvette’s current research focusses on acknowledging and incorporating students’ diverse linguistic repertoires through curriculum and pedagogical innovations, and her recent publications reflect her interest in linguistic pluralism as a lived experience for Australian students.
