Mr Richard Warner

Richard Warner
Lecturer
School of Education
Faculty of Arts

My background is in Applied Linguistics and I have taught Academic English at both the University of Edinburgh (1999-1992) and the University of Adelaide (1993-present). My major roles in the School of Education are to enable master's student academic development through teaching into research processes and communication courses. In addition, I coordinated and taught in the Introductory Academic Program (IAP) for AusAID international students from 2006-2016. I also lectured in the Integrated Bridging Program (IBP) for postgraduate research students from its inception in 1994 until 2015. Currently I am also involved in an ongoing consulting capacity, co-chairing the committee (PAC) which oversees the Pre-Enrolment English Program (PEP) offered by Professional and Continuing Education at the University.
My specific research interests include:
-Cultural dimensions of academic writing, particularly in relation to plagiarism and feedback.
-Development of lifelong learning through reflective practice.
-Pedagogical approaches to student diversity, focussing on transcultural reflective practices.
-Relevance of postgraduate research skills courses to thesis outcomes
-Curriculum innovation, design and renewal, including new technologies.
-Role of pathway programs for English as an Additional Language (EAL) students in enhancing their future success.
