I am a Senior Lecturer in TESOL at The University of Salford in the UK. 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, workshops etc. in so many parts of the world. I am honoured to have met and worked with dedicated TESOL professionals in Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Oman, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Sudan, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, USA, UAE and Vietnam! I undertake external validation and examining activities and I have had commissions from Routledge and Oxford University Press to review works prior to publication. My teacher education areas of expertise include technology, methodology, syllabus design, teaching materials, research methods and English for Academic Purposes (EAP). I am a reader for the following peer-reviewed journals: CALL-EJ; TESL-EJ; TESOL Journal; System.
