My main role is to support the language needs of nearly 1,000 international nursing students (see the document "What I do in the College" on the right sidebar giving Further Information).
I deliver face-to-face classes and online support to students, and engage in a range of staff and curriculum-based activities to enhance international student learning.
I research nursing English, language testing and policy, vocabulary-centred language competence, and the efficacy of videogames and mobile apps to teach English.
I am an elected academic representative member of Flinders University Council.
Please look at the "PhD and Masters Projects Available NOW" document, to the right of this page (or on http://www.flinders.edu.au/people/amanda.muller).
I research communication and learning. Areas of particular interest include language testing and policy, e-learning (including educational gaming), and more.
