Current Staff Information
Ms Louise Greener
During the academic year I direct the Cross-disciplinary In-sessional courses. These courses are designed to provide academic language and literacy training and support to International students from across the University. A range of courses are offered in all three terms and includes collaborations with CEEC and the University Library.
I also oversee the DALT (Durham Academic Language Test), an academic English language test made available to all incoming international students wishing to access our In-sessional courses.
My other key role is as Deputy Director of the Centre’s summer Pre-sessional courses. Every year between July and September, we welcome up to 500 international students for intensive academic language and literacy training to prepare them for life in their Durham department. As well as overseeing the day to day teaching, I lead the development of curriculum, materials and assessments.
I also contribute to a number of MA modules; supervise MA dissertations and lead the undergraduate module English and its Social Context.
I currently act as an external examiner for University EAP courses and have given a number of talks and presentations at BALEAP and IATEFL events on issues related to EAP curriculum and materials development.
