My teaching expertise and interests fall into three key areas: The application of systemic functional linguistics (SFL) and genre theories to the study of language and academic discourse in order to develop students' knowledge and skills in academic literacy. This includes the study of learning context and theory, collaborative learning in the discourse community and apprenticeship in academic reading and writing for the improvement of learning outcomes and graduate attributes. Pedagogical approach to teaching and learning in higher education, in particular the deployment of educational technology to provide flexible and blended learning. Educational design, using the pattern-based approach to develop reusable and sharable resources for the support of teaching and learning. Educational design patterns capture and share well proven experience, knowledge and practices and can be used to provide new teachers with principles and guidelines for their work.

Description

This chapter first demonstrates how Bakhtin’s concept of time and space in literature studies (1981) can be used to account for the rhetorical connections between the 11 September 2001 attacks (referred to as ‘the 9/ 11 event’) and the consequent development of ‘war on terror’ and the Iraq war. The chapter also applies Bakhtin’s concept of metamorphosis (transformation) to explain how children’s social experiences, particularly during a catastrophic event, can bring about internal transformations and transmute their concepts of an object or idea into new forms. This argument is further supported in Thibault’s work (2004) on how children use their symbolic resources to construct their social experience by reflecting on their immediate environment.
