About Me

My name is Andrea Sterzuk. I’m a teacher, teacher educator, and educational researcher. I am a full professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina where I teach graduate and undergraduate courses. Broadly, my research addresses language issues related to settler colonialism.

I speak/write English, French and Spanish and I’m learning Plains Cree and Ukrainian. I have a Bachelor of French Education from the University of Regina, an MA in Second Language Education from McGill University, and a PhD in Second Language Education with a specialization in Language Acquisition from McGill University. Roy Lyster was my supervisor. My previous experiences include teaching, teacher education, and educational research in Mexico, Malawi, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Québec, and Saskatchewan, where I grew up and now live.

I’ve also held a number of academic leadership roles: Acting Dean of the Faculty of Education (2017/2018), Acting Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Programs in the Faculty of Education (2015-2017), and Past President (2018-2020), President (2016-2018) and Vice President (2014-2016) of the Canadian Assocation of Applied Linguistics/Association canadienne de linguistique appliquée. From December 2020 to September 2021, I was the director of the Centre for Educational Research, Collaboration and Development (CERCD) in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina.

I am a board trustee for the Center for Applied Linguistics. I am a series co-editor for the Handbooks of Applied Linguistics series with De Gruyter Mouton. As of September 18, 2022, I currently hold the position of Associate Vice President, Research at the University of Regina.
