ODU Faculty Invited to Provost’s Conversation on Integrating Research into Teaching

Bridget Anderson, associate professor of applied linguistics, uses undergraduates to assist with fieldwork for her research into Tidewater dialects. Her students also work at service learning projects in which they raise awareness about the nature and function of diversity in dialects.

On Thursday, Nov. 20, Anderson will lead a Provost's Conversation on Teaching and Learning on the topic of "Integrating Research into Teaching: Bringing the Undergraduate Research Experience to the Classroom." The event, which is presented by the Center for Learning and Teaching, the Office of Distance Learning and the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Carol Simpson, will be held at 12:30 p.m. in the conference room of the Learning Commons@Perry Library.

The Provost's Conversation on Teaching and Learning sessions are open to all faculty members and offer the opportunity to reflect and share about the teaching and learning process. Anderson's conversation will focus on opportunities for undergraduates to benefit from the experience of conducting research. It will also include tips for introducing undergraduates to research methods.

Anderson joined the Old Dominion faculty in 2005. In addition to her work with ODU in applied linguistics, she serves as a member of the United States Secret Service Forensic Linguistics Team for a federally funded voice recognition project.

Anderson also regularly takes forensic casework that involves voice comparisons. She is the author of "Migration, Accommodation, and Language Change: Language at the Intersection of Regional and Ethnic Identity" as well as articles on Cherokee English, Appalachian English and African-American English. Anderson is currently finishing a book on southern mountain speech.
