Institution: Dalarna University

Country: Sweden

Katarina Lindahl holds a Licentiate of Philosophy in Subject Matter Education with a focus on English from Gothenburg University. In her licentiate thesis Katarina focused on vocational English in the Building and Construction Programme. The aim of the licentiate thesis was to examine how, and in what ways, vocational English is a part of English language teaching in the Building and Construction Programme in Sweden, and what the influences were for such pedagogy. The main research question was how policy documents relate to the views of teachers and their educational practice regarding vocational English.
