I have been involved in online training and management training for the past 15 years, running a range of distance, face to face, and online training programmes for academic managers I wrote the management module for the MSc in TESOL previously offered by Aston University, and was subject tutor and dissertation supervisor for that module for several years. I have also tutored the management module for the MA in TESOL offered by Westminster University. I am a frequent conference speaker on topics related to academic management and online training.
I have worked in ELT for longer than I care to remember (!) and have worked in the UK, Spain and Hungary as well as on short training contracts in other locations. I have been a committee member of the Leadership and Management Special Interest Group for IATEFL, and am Chair of the IATEFL Scholarship Committee, responsible for managing the IATEFL scholarship scheme. I am an experienced line manager of both face to face and remote teachers and tutors. My areas of special interest are teacher development, trainer development and academic manager development.
