I joined Core Program of AUW in August 2017 and have been teaching UG writing seminar courses. Previously I worked as English Language Instructor with Pathways for Promise program at AUW, Lecturer in English at North East University Bangladesh, Faculty of English Language at Scholastica, and Teaching Assistant at North South University. After completing BA (Honors) in English from Leading University, Sylhet, and MA in English (TESOL) from North South University, Dhaka, I did CELTA under University of Cambridge.
I’m currently teaching UG writing seminar courses.
My main research interest is the integration of ICT in English language teaching, especially in using self-accessed and self-paced web tools and Smartphone apps to support classroom teaching. Language test development and error analysis are among other areas I have huge interest in. I am also interested in Teacher development, Computer-Assisted Language Learning, and contextualizing modern approaches of language teaching and learning for Bangladeshi students and teachers.
