I was born and educated in China. After gaining a MSc degree in engineering in China, I worked in the educational industry in Beijing for a few years, before coming to the UK. I completed a MA in Educational Management at Warwick University and then took a one-year training course to be qualified to teach Mandarin. I joined the Language Centre in 2005, teaching the newly established academic Mandarin modules at that time. Since then, I have taught various Mandarin modules, both academic and LLL at different levels and am the Mandarin Lifelong Learning coordinator. My primary role is teaching, but I am also interested in research of teaching pedagogy, including student’s engagement, blended learning, flipped teaching and teaching technology.
Outside the Warwick University, I also work for the Open University as an AL and consultant, delivering both face to face and online tutorials, designing and proofreading online assessments and course assignments, and served as the final exam marker.
