My Background

I am now a Senior Consultant for NILE and Module Leader for Developing Autonomy on the MA in Professional Development for Language Education. I have been advisor to the boards of Thailand TESOL, Philippines Association for Language Teaching (PALT), Society of Pakistan English Language Teachers (SPELT) and English Language Teacher’s Association of India (ELTI). I have also worked with multiple state ministries of education across East and South Asia. I’m also a member of Eaquals, IATEFL and BALEAP.

Why Globe?

Why did you decide to become a Globe PLC mentor?

Right from the start, I have always been interested in getting people talking about teaching. Any time we get together and focus on what we do, reflect on our successes, explore our failure, we are bringing a foundation for a more solid future. 

What can people expect from the Developing Autonomy PLC?

Whatever they want to make of it! Tell us what you are thinking and we will agree, disagree or explore your thinking with you. Tell  us what you want to talk about and we will engage in a discussion with you. That is the nature of an autonomous learning community. Tell us what you want to happen and we will help it along

Why would you encourage people to join Globe? 

It is the only truly Global professional learning community that does not have an agenda other than to help people connect and to help them achieve their development goals. It is a safe place to experiment and to develop new ideas
