Research overview <p>My research started off in the areas of independent and autonomous learning of languages, including language advising, email Tandem learning, and self-assessment. At the Open University, I have also developed an interest in&nbsp;the use of technology and in tutor training for teaching languages online and other aspects of distance education. Before joining the OU, I taught German at the University of Sheffield and took part in the HEFCE-funded&quot;Interculture project&quot; dealing with students&#39; experience during their period of residence abroad. I have worked on various projects with colleagues in the OU and elsewhere, e.g. the&quot;Interaction project&quot;, part of the larger Beginners&#39; language study, comparing the different interaction patterns observable in face-to-face and online tutorials. Collaboration with two universities and one adult education institution in Germany has resulted in numerous successful Tandem partnerships between native speakers of English and of German, some of which have been analysed for research purposes. My current publications are mostly in the areas of technology enhanced language learning and online teaching skills, qualitative research methods, and&nbsp;eyetracking.<br /><br />Areas of interest:</p><ul><li>Training of Online Tutors</li><li>Virtual Learning Environments</li><li>Interaction in Online Language Tutorials</li><li>Eyetracking</li><li>Tandem Learning</li><li>Language Learning and Teaching Skills</li><li>Autonomy in Language Learning</li></ul><div><p>Projects:</p><ul><li>LITERALIA Tandem Project:&nbsp;European project&nbsp;(Socrates-Grundtvig funding)&nbsp;&nbsp;</li><li>Beginners&#39; Study: Interaction Study (with C.Batstone, A.Duensing, B.Heins)</li><li>DOTS (Developing Online&nbsp;Teaching Skills) and moreDOTS&nbsp;(with R.Hampel, T.Beaven); ICT-REV (with Regine Hampel, Sarah Heiser): European projects (ECML and EU funding)</li></ul></div><p>&nbsp;</p>
