General

I have been working at Aston since 1994. Until 2005 I was involved with managing, developing, and teaching on a range of programmes that have included the pre-sessional and in-sessional academic English courses for overseas students, language courses for foundation year students, communication skills courses for home students, and IELTS preparatory courses. I have also been teaching on teacher education courses ranging from the Certificate in TEFL course, to the distance learning Advanced Certificate in TEFL and Diploma in Professional TESOL Studies.

Since 2005, I have been teaching the Course and Materials module on the MSc in TESOL programmes. I am the Programme Director of the on-campus MA in TESOL Studies and am responsible for organizing and supervising teaching practice, as well as teaching course design, and supervising dissertations both on-campus and distance learning.
