Faculty in ELIP's Classroom Research Unit

Established in 2014, the mission of the ELIP Classroom Research Unit (CRU) is to conduct research in and of ELIP’s educational context and to apply findings to inform ELIP’s curriculum and teacher development, in addition to sharing our research findings in various academic and professional venues. The ELIP CRU consists of ELIP faculty and graduate research assistants (M.A. Applied Linguistics students).

Dr. Joseph J. Lee, associate lecturer in the Linguistics Department and the Assistant Director of ELIP, heads the ELIP Classroom Research Unit (CRU). His research and teaching interests include genre studies, English for Specific/Academic Purposes (ESP/EAP), classroom discourse studies, advanced academic literacy, applied corpus linguistics, and teacher education. He is also interested in issues of learner and teacher identities. Research and educators interested in the ELIP CRU’s research projects or findings can contact Dr. Lee at leej3@ohio.edu.
