Albert Weideman biography
Albert Weideman is the CEO of ICELDA, a formal partnership of four multi-lingual South African universities. He also holds the position of professor of applied language studies in the Department of Linguistics and Language Practice at University of the Free State. He is an expert language tester, and advises tertiary institutions globally on the development of responsible measuring instruments. The quality of ICELDA’s tests derives to a large extent from his creative designs. He has worked in the Faculty of Education of the University of the Western Cape, the Centre for Education Development (CENEDUS) of the University of Stellenbosch, and the Unit for Academic Literacy of the University of Pretoria, both in management and academic roles. His research focus is on assessing academic literacy, and on how this relates to developing a theory of applied linguistics, or what he calls a foundational framework for working responsibly within that discipline.
