Professional Development Activities

Professional development which is contextualized in individual practice and closely linked to the day-to-day professional concerns of the Centre has always been a part of the Centre’s distinctive profile. In 2016-2017, we continued to run our highly successful series of CAES Seminars. Staff also participated in conferences around the world, several as keynote or plenary speakers. A number of staff members are moving towards completion of their doctoral studies. Other staff were awarded prizes for their work and obtained research grants. Several staff members are engaged in activities with journals and international bodies such as TESOL and BAAL which both increase the influence and profile of the Centre while professionally developing the staff members involved.
