Profile

I have worked at the University of Leeds since 2001, teaching English for Academic Purposes (EAP). I have been closely involved in curriculum development across a range of the programmes offered by the Language Centre, and am now working on more closely connecting the teaching of EAP with the disciplinary teaching practices within individual Schools. I was appointed as one of the first cohort of LITE (Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence) Fellows in 2016.

Student education

I teach English for Academic Purposes, primarily to taught post-graduate students. I developed the current pre-sessional curriculum for both the year-round programme and the summer content-based strands. I now work in partnership with Schools across the University to further embed English for Academic Purposes provision into their taught post-graduate curriculum and to support consideration of a more international and inclusive approach to education.
