Lecturer, Academic Language and Learning Success Program

I joined CDU in 2015 as a Lecturer in Academic Language and Learning. Prior to that I worked for 4 years as a Learning Adviser and as a tutor for Business Communication at Macquarie University. Prior to that I taught English as a Second Language for 8 years, first at Milton College and then at Greenwich College, both in Sydney. In my current role I run workshops and conduct individual consultations relating to all areas of academic literacy, and co-ordinate the Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) program at CDU Sydney Campus.

My main focus is on academic literacy, and introducing students to the academic culture of universities in Australia. I have a strong background in developing curricular and non-curricular materials to develop students’ academic literacy skills, and have been involved in creating procedures and policies around developing the written and spoken language proficiency of university students.
