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 and explore my research interests in critical applied linguistics. I speak/write English, French and Spanish and I’m learning Plains Cree and Saulteaux. 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 now live.

As of January, 2021, I’m the director of the Centre for Educational Research, Collaboration and Development (CERCD) in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina. I’ve also held a number of other 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.
