My research interests centre mainly on second language acquisition, foreign language planning and the teaching and learning of languages. For my ESRC-funded PhD at the University of Cambridge, I investigated foreign language planning in multilingual schools and their communities. I have also researched the issue of `pupil voice´ in educational research.
I enjoy my teaching and value the contact with all my students across all progammes. I aim to make sure that my teaching sessions draw upon relevant, critical and up-to-date linguistic and educational research. I believe that sound theory makes for good practice.
I am the course co-ordinator for the Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in Modern Languages and the MA in Applied Professional Studies in Education (languages). I am the Director of the Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL) in conjunction with Sheffield Hallam University. I am also a member of the EdD Language Learning and Teaching team. I supervise a number of PhD and EdD students.
