Teaching and Leadership:
I have taught English for Academic Purposes in the Language Centre for 16 years. I have taught and managed programmes for Undergraduate and Post-graduate students, and taught credit-bearing modules, presessional and insessional programmes.
I sat on the Language Centre Management Group as Academic Lead for Year-Round Presessionals and was responsible for staffing and the development and Quality Assurance of all academic year presessional programmes
Teaching Enhancement Work:
I developed and co-ordinated weekly Language Teaching Forums for the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies. I was responsible for developing and carrying out a cross-Centre teaching observation scheme. I was the strategic lead for the development of 9 content-based presessional programmes, covering development of learning outcomes, assessments and consultation on curriculum development
I have a broad interest in teacher education, particularly through curriculum design and classroom observation. I have conducted a number of small scale projects involving Exploratory Practice. I am currently researching the role language plays in shaping discipline specific knowledge and understanding, and what this means in terms of EAP and subject teacher knowledge and attributes.
