The course provides a personalized and plurlingual approach to intensive English; beginning with a review of concepts such as the Deep Approach, Educational Technology, World Englishes, English for practical purposes; and linguistic diversity vs standardized English. Students create a personal learning environment & Plan (PLEP) to navigate English requirements such as work, study, publishing. The course is strongly personal in self-assessment, self-creation of learning resources and self-pacing; but with the professor’s expert guidance and feedback. 


Kristine M. Harrison

  see Dr. Kristine M. Harrison was born in Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A., and completed all her degrees at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has a PhD in Curriculum & Instruction. Dr. Harrison is a research associate at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research, an honorary postdoctoral fellow at the University of Wisconsin, and assistant professor at Deep University. Her expertise lies in indigenous, refugee, and displaced students’ education. She also focuses on language education policy in favor of multilingual education. Before her doctoral work, Dr. Harrison has a background in Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies. She lived and taught abroad in Morocco, the Sultanate of Oman, and in diaspora Palestinian communities in the Caribbean (St. Croix, USVI; and Puerto Rico); in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) positions or in private schools.  Her graduate work began in international education with the paradoxes of global education standards that she theorizes as not inclusive or applicable to all cultures and languages’ conceptual parameters for education. She wrote her master’s thesis about UNESCO’s Education for All initiative. From there she spent two years teaching English in the Sultanate of Oman until 2011 when she returned to the University of Wisconsin for further graduate work. In late 2015 she finished her PhD, and in 2016 she published the book form of her doctoral work about Puerto Rico, about the effect of language education policy on children’s identity formation, titled Educational Imperialism: Schooling and Indigenous Identity in Puerto Rico (2016). She also wrote syllabi and taught Spanish for an international education exchange program in Santiago, Dominican Republic. From May 2016 to April 2027 she worked on a large grant, and co-coordinated a bi-continental conference in Madison, Wisconsin and Paris, France about Language Education Policy (LEP) for refugee children. In addition, she was a part-time temporary English Instructor at the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras from 2016-2017. After the Paris conference in May 2017 at the Sorbonne University, she moved to the Andalusi city of Tetuan in the north of Morocco just across the Mediterranean from the south of Spain.She is on the editorial board for the International Network of Language Education Policy Studies (INLEPS), and a new journal called Immigration and Language Education. She has focused and published on issues aligned with language education policy (LEP), starting with the INLEPS website that began in 2013.  She also published a chapter Interpreting Language Education Policies: Conceptual, Disciplinary, Indigenous, and Deep Parameters for Multilingual Environments (Co-authored with Dr. Tochon, 2015) in the first book in this series, which is a conceptual and methodological approach to interpreting LEP.  Contact: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our courses will officially open after approval of the Wisconsin Educational Approval Board, probably in Summer of 2018.

The deep approach is about mindset and embodied action. It is about persons, humans, in the dynamics of living. It is something people want to live and work for. It is never fully achieved, it is always in the making, and depends upon situations.
