Professor Do Coyle
University of Edinburgh
AboutDo currently holds a chair in Language Education and Classroom Pedagogies at the University of Edinburgh. She is known across the globe for her work in CLIL. Her research with teachers and learners led to the conceptualisation of the 4Cs Framework and the Language Triptych in the CUP 2010 book CLIL (Coyle, Hood and Marsh). More recently she has focussed on the role of literacies, critical literacies and pluriliteracies for all teachers across subject disciplines and languages resulting in her 2021 CUP publication with Oliver Meyer on the PTDL Framework (Beyond CLIL: Pluriliteracies Teaching for Deeper learning). She was honoured as a Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Palmes Académiques awarded by the French Government for promoting transnational Teacher Education and holds a Lord Dearing Award for Excellence in Teaching in Higher Education.

These not only promote integrated learning (CLIL) but identify ways of deepening conceptual development, critical engagement, resilience and agency within and across subject disciplines, languages and intercultural practices.
