Thesis title: Social networking in language teaching and the impact on teacher training
Start year: 2011
My doctoral research concentrates on exploring social networking sites in second language teaching, and in particular:
To continue my development, both for career and personal purposes.
I had an excellent working relationship with my supervisor during my Masters Degree and I felt confident that I could progress to PhD level aided by her supervision.
Persistence, writing skills and critical engagement.
My supervisors are always available and enthusiastic about my research, but also critical and knowledgeable about the topic.
Excellent support from my supervisors and the graduate office.
I currently teach on the PGCE / Cert Ed at a further education college. In the future I do hope to be able to teach in a university setting and to publish my own research.
