I am a UK-based teacher educator, author, educational consultant and researcher with over twenty years of experience supporting teachers in primary, secondary and tertiary contexts in Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Eritrea, Kenya, Malawi, Morocco, Rwanda, South Africa), Europe (Austria, Italy, Turkey, UK, Ukraine) and Asia (Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Thailand), both pre-service and in-service. I have published both research and theoretical articles in leading journals in the field and have won awards both for my writing for teachers, and for my research into teacher education.
I am interested in projects involving the development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of pre-service and in-service teacher education programmes and resources. I work both in language teaching and mainstream education, where I have trained and developed materials for primary and secondary teachers on projects for UNICEF, the British Council and others. I have a strong interest in context-specific approaches to teacher education, and work closely with partners and stakeholders to ensure solutions are locally developed and culturally appropriate.
