Selected Research Projects
I have written a book on ESP Law (under review); and now in the process of finishing ESP Human Resources.
Advancing the English Language, acquisition and teaching methodology via symposiums or field visits.
It is my philosophy of teaching that learning needs to be quintessentially student-centred. My role as a teacher is to use my expertise to provide necessary tools and resources for the students to explore their way to the “truth”. As a teacher of ESP in Law for undergraduates, students are typically organised in groups the purpose of which is to inculcate the in the minds of students the principle of cooperative learning. Teaching in different academic institutions has led to me believe that students, and students only, can claim the ownership of their education. This can only be done when the teachers’ input doesn’t exceed %30, whilst the remaining %70 is solely for the students.
