My research focuses on the issue of teaching and learning in different contexts. Specifically, I am analysing the role of silence, technology-mediated interaction, small group settings (e.g. problem based learning, project based learning), identity and wellbeing. I would like to further explore multilevel perspectives on teaching and learning, combining micro (ie the use of language) and macro level analysis (ie social, cultural, and political practice). The ultimate goal of my research is to improve and enrich teaching and learning experience in the process of curriculum and professional developments.
