In addition to my main responsibilities, I am responsible for the managing of the Teacher Assistant provision on the EAP PG summer presessional. I have also initiated a Peer-Assisted Study Scheme (PASS) for Foundation students.
My main research interests include how you can successfully incorporate English for Specific Academic Purposes (ESAP) onto an English for General Academic Purposes (EGAP) course, the role of Postgraduate Teacher Assistants as subject specialists and the effectiveness of peer support.
