Sally is a Lecturer in Education at the School of Education at the University of Glasgow.
She has worked as a teacher educator for several years and has designed and taught on English-medium ITE courses. She has taught both children and adults in France, Germany and in the UK.
In 2012 she moved to Glasgow where she currently teaches on the MEd/MSc TESOL and initial teacher education programmes within the school.
Sally’s research interests are in applying usage-based (cognitive and functional) approaches to understanding language development in all pedagogical contexts. She believes understanding classroom discourse holds the key to improving classroom practice.
