Although I have rarely held formal teaching positions, I have often found myself working with learners. My classroom experience started as English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teacher in 2001. Since then, I have held several more teaching-related roles, usually on a casual basis alongside my permanent positions.
My current goal in this area is to professionalise my approach to teaching and learning, by building a teaching portfolio and working towards fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
I have taught undergraduate and Masters students, with and without work experience, at universities in the UK and in Australia. My teaching experience includes lectures, workshops and tutorial formats, delivered online and/or in-person.
I have also designed and delivered short courses for professional linguists, in line with multiple national accrediting bodies in North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region.
I have taught on the following units:
- Marketing Internationally (MBus in International Marketing)
- Bridging Cultures (aimed at developing cross-cultural capabilities for final-year undergraduates in International Business)
- Cultural Studies (final-year undergraduates in the humanities)
- Online Marketing for Freelancers (professional development for the Chartered Institute of Linguists, Institute of Translators & Interpreters, American Translators Association, among others)
- International Business Development for Small Businesses
(professional development for members of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, Institute of Translators & Interpreters, American Translators Association, among others)
- Technology for Translators (professional development for for the Institute of Translators & Interpreters)
- Academic English as a Foreign Language (advanced adult English-language learners)
