My areas of interest

include mainstream and EAL teachers' cognitions, practices, education and assessment literacy, with regard to EAL.  I am also interested in the acquisition, evaluation and assessment of additional language in a range of contexts.

These complement the practical contexts of which I have experience; the teaching and learning of EAL school-aged learners within mainstream, EAL and ESOL classrooms.
