Ms Rachel Edmonds


I have been teaching and managing courses in English and English for Academic Purposes for speakers of other languages for over 17 years.

At Kingston University, I am the Course Director of the Pre-sessional English Courses.

My specific research areas are the analysis of creative academic genres; corpus analysis and multimodal analysis and I am currently working on my PhD with Birmingham University. I am also interested in course and assessment design and the development of online resources for learning.
