Project Summary

My research interests lie at the intersection of language teacher psychology and teaching abroad in higher education. To be more specific, I am interested in researching resilience and its development vis-a-vis English for Academic Purposes (EAP) instructors who are working abroad in a higher education context.

I have submitted a research proposal as part of the thesis phase of my EdD, and passed the relevant module. I have also communicated with my future thesis supervisor and had initial talks.

I believe teacher resilience is an important topic, but given the ongoing situation, it is now all the more important. Indeed, as the moderator of my research proposal assignment stated "There has, perhaps, never been a time when resilience was more needed".
