Interests and Areas of expertise

Over the years I have been very involved in course design, project-based and self-directed learning, embedded  ESP / EAP programmes and international testing.

Favourite things about Cork My favourite thing about Cork is that I don’t live there!.  I live in the neighbouring county – Kerry.  But living in a quieter and more rural place, I can enjoy the occasional ‘day out’ and the buzz of the city all the more.
