Teaching responsibilities

As a Lecturer in Education Studies, I have responsibility for leading the following modules:

Professional interests

Having lived abroad and taught students from culturally diverse backgrounds for many years, I am interested in all aspects of international education and lead an international field trip every year. As an English language educator for over 20 years, I am also interested in TESOL.  I am currently undertaking doctoral work which focuses on the role of different types of vocabulary needed at undergraduate level study and how this links to academic achievement.

Research interests

Recent research projects have centred on the internationalisation of higher education. Specifically, I am interested in how the needs of both European and international students can be met through various academic support mechanisms and inclusive teaching strategies.
