As a French Lecturer I have focussed on developing employability via E-Learning, as well as immersive techniques for Language Learning.

Teaching in Swansea has allowed me to develop pedagogies and structures for teaching and learning, as well as participate actively in the ongoing development of E-Learning at national and international levels. Since 2010 I have attended, presented and given workshops at Southampton for the LLAS E-Learning Symposium. I enjoy being a part of the evolution and community of E-Learning, and being at the forefront of this cutting edge discipline. I always give thought to new and more efficient ways of using new technologies, for teaching or organizing teaching, and have developed the successful 3rd Year Film Studio presentation as well as the Translation and Interpreting Masters’ course ‘Audio Visual Adaptations’ in conjunction with Professor Andy Rothwell.

My long term goal and philosophy is developing harmonious relationships between career-orientated employability and language learning, in all the courses I teach.

Born in London to a French mother and British Father, I was educated at French Schools in London, such as the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle, and so my upbringing, in Britain and France, has gifted me with a total bilingual disposition in French and English as well as a deep understanding of both of these cultures. I also lived in Spain for 2 years and speak fluent Spanish.

I spent a year at the Universidad Complutense, Madrid after graduating from UCL, and then studied at UC Davis, California under the guidance of esteemed professors, such as Maria Manea Manoliu, Marc Blanchard and Georges Van Den Abbeele.

As well as E-Learning my passions are Linguistics, Literature, Creative Writing, Web development, and Translation.
