Ms Kashmir Kaur (FHEA)

Profile

I have taught English for Academic Purposes on a variety of courses to both postgraduate and undergraduate students at Leeds University since October 2008. For the past five years I have been directing the Foreign Language Assistants’ Course. I was the initial Level 2, Academic English for Postgraduate Studies, Module Leader - who developed the course, prior to moving on to collaborate on the joint school project between the Leeds Engineering Faculty and the SWJT University.This has entailed teaching approximately two months in Semester One in Chengdu in 2016, 2017 and 2018. I was the lead in developing and delivering the Academic Communication module for the Academic English for Postgraduate Studies’ programme. For the Language in Context (LinC) course, I developed and taught a module on sustainability which focussed on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations and linked them to the students' disciplines.

My teaching experience also includes Academic English at Durham University, International Foundation Course at Leeds Metropolitan University and ESOL/EFL at Shipley & Leeds City colleges. Additionally, I have taught in Beirut for the British Council where I was involved in developing and delivering professional development training to Palestinian and Lebanese teachers with respect to teaching content in the medium of English.

Prior to moving into the education sector, I spent several years working in the broadcasting industry. My time in television gave me extensive business and media experience and an in depth knowledge of programme making particularly in the documentaries, features and factual entertainment departments.
