Overview

I am currently a Senior Tutor in Digital Education and was previously a Commonwealth scholar at the University of Manchester. My doctoral research focused on the technology training of preservice language teachers in under-resourced contexts with a focus on how educational policies and their implementation shape the development of technology using teacher identities of preservice teachers.

I have taught English in different Universities and trained teachers both preservice and in-service in Rwanda. I have also worked on various donor-funded educational projects, including those funded by the British Council, the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the Belgian technical cooperation project PAFP (Programme d’Appui pour la Formation Professionelle).

I have a PhD in Education (thesis project explored digital teacher identities in an under-resourced contexts), a Masters in TESOL Educational Technology (University of Manchester), a BA in French and English with Education (University of Rwanda-College of Education), an Advanced Certificate in English Language Teaching (University of Oregon) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (University of Rwanda-College of Education)

Research interests include Instructional technology, EFL/ESL, Language Teacher Education, Digital Teacher Identity and Education for development.
