At present I am a Senior Lecturer in TESOL at The University of Salford in the UK until 7th October 2016 when I take early retirement. However, beyond this date my work in TESOL will very much continue albeit in different ways.
I have an extensive publication record and I am a regular presenter at international conferences usually as a keynote or plenary speaker. In addition to the UK, I have lived and worked in Sudan, Kuwait and Thailand. I have been fortunate enough to deliver numerous presentations, consultancies, guest lectures and workshops in over 20 countries and I look forward to continuing to do so beyond 7th October. Please get in touch if you wish to invite me to talk at your event and\or to commission our services which includes recruitment and promotion of products (including books), services and conferences.
I undertake external validation and examining activities and I have had commissions from Routledge and Oxford University Press to review works prior to publication. I have significant experience in: internationalisation; marketing and recruitment; teaching and lecturing; research and scholarship. From 8th October I look forward to working closely with a select number of Higher Education Institutions and other TESOL-based organisations both in the UK and abroad. My work on this website and our social media outlets provide unrivalled outreach and I hope to be able to make further partnership and cooperation announcements later in the year. My teacher education areas of expertise include: education technology; methodology; syllabus design; teaching materials; research methods; English for Academic Purposes (EAP) - most recently (and for obvious reasons) I have become particularly interested in social media for CPD in TESOL.
