Biography and Research Interests

Peggy Hartwick is an Assistant Professor in Carleton University’s School of Linguistics and Language Studies. Until recently, Peggy taught English as a Second Language Academic (ESLA) at Carleton. Her research is focused on the affordances of digital tools, online learning contexts, and assessment practices. She continues to explore innovative teaching techniques, such as Educational Artificial Intelligence (EAI) and the implications of such tools in post-secondary teaching and learning contexts. Currently, she is collaborating with a student on a project designed for graduate and undergraduate students that seeks to understand Second Language Acquisition (SLA) theory through student experiences with tools like Duolingo and ChatGPT. Peggy is the past recipient of the 2015 Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLEH/ Brightspace innovation award, Carleton’s 2013 Excellence in Blended and Online Teaching, and most recently she was awarded the Teaching Development Award from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
