Contribution to the project

My contribution to the project is based on my expertise in the field of 1) design of online language courses; 2) teacher training for virtual environments; 3) research in the area of computer-mediated communication. The project also benefits from my experience as project leader, project partner or reference group member on various other national and international projects in the area of online language learning and teaching, funded e.g. by the British Academy, the British Association for Applied Linguistics, the European Commission, and the Australian Research Council.
