CANCELLED - To be rearranged. 100 Loaves but no fish - the miracle of becoming a Professor on the Teaching Track

11th May 2020, 17:30 to 19:15, Lecture Theatre TLC033, Teaching and Learning Centre, Durham University

In the first of a series of termly DCAD Inaugural Public Lectures, Professor Megan Bruce will give an overview of her career to date, from the essay writing competition where she won 100 loaves of bread through to her current role as Director of Combined Social Sciences at Durham University.

Megan's lecture will outline how degrees in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics as well as work in a variety of related professions including Lexicography, EFL (teaching English as a Foreign Language) and ESOL (teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) led her in September 2002 to an initial 2-week contract at Durham University where she has worked ever since.

Megan's lecture will focus on her scholarship interests which explore aspects of student belonging including corpus approaches to EAP and cohort identity building initiatives.

This inaugural DCAD teaching track lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.
