I teach courses in English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) teacher education. In particular, at the doctoral level, I teach doctoral seminars on topics such as Research in Second/Foreign Language Teacher Professional Development and Research into the International Perspectives on Language Teacher Education. At the masters level, I teach courses on English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL/ELT) instruction and assessment approaches, content-based language instruction, teaching English in Global Contexts and culture issues in language teaching. I usually assume a blended load i.e. I teach face-to-face classes on campus, online and/or hybrid classes. My research areas are in ESL and content area teacher collaboration, language teacher professional development and online/hybrid instruction. I am currently undertaking a new research area on the professional development of Chinese English Language teachers.
