About me

I first taught English as a foreign language in 1988, in Malta, then graduated from the University of Malta in 1990 and started teaching English in a state secondary school, also in Malta. I did my MA at the College of St Mark & St John (UK) in 1991 and taught for a few more years in Malta after that, starting a PhD at the University of Exeter in 1994. I spent two years in New Zealand from 1996, teaching, teacher training and finishing the PhD, and in 1998 I joined the University of Leeds. I left Leeds as a Professor of TESOL in 2014 to become a full-time ELT consultant.  

The main focus of my consultancy and academic work today is the design, delivery, evaluation and research of teacher professional development programmes. Details of recent publications are available on this site and there’s also a blog, where I discuss contemporary issues in teacher development.
