Carolyn Mison-Smith

Lecturer, Tertiary Enabling Program

I joined the School of Academic Language and Learning (SALL) in 2013 having spent the six years immediately prior with the Information Communication and Technology Learning unit in the Department of Education, Northern Territory Government, and in Singapore as the Director of Studies for the Hawthorn Singapore English Language Centre. 

I have a background in language teaching and studied literature as an international student with the University of Indonesia, Jakarta. My interest in digital technologies emerged in South Korea whilst teaching English with the Samsung Human Resource Development Centre. I currently teach Computing for Tertiary Studies in the Tertiary Enabling Program and am undertaking PhD studies part-time.
