Dr Michelle Evans


In my current role, I work with pre-sessional and in-sessional students from the School of Education. I obtained my PhD in Education from the University of Warwick. My doctoral project explored academic genres across disciplines and the second langage writing processes of Vietnamese postgraduates in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Alongside PhD study, I taught English for Academic Purposes in the UK and Vietnam. I have undertaken impact assessment work within English Language Teaching projects including the Teacher-Research for Difficult Circumstances project and the Warwick in Africa project at the University of Warwick. My current scholarship activities relate broadly to the sociology of EAP and the ethics of scholarship. Two new genre-related projects include an investigation into writing for promotion purposes and a scoping project to assess access to literature for EAP practitioners.  I continue to explore ways of working with students as partners in my teaching practice.
