Lecturing

[my availability at present is very limited, but there may be opportunities for development or delivery of courses that could benefit your institution as well as my place of work, so do feel free to contact me with your ideas].
At certain times of the year I am available to teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the areas of applied linguistics, second language acquisition, teacher education, and specific topics related to my research interests. In addition, I offer staff development courses.

I teach both on-site, subject to my schedule, and online, using collaboration software such as Adobe Connect, or free alternatives such as Google Hangouts. I also run Moodle on my server and am able to offer courses through that in case no CMS is available in your institution. This means that I am often quite flexible in teaching courses at short notice, for example in the case where a replacement is needed. I also teach in Second Life.
