I received my Ph.D in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Jordan in 2016 and master degree in English language methodology from the Hashemite University in 2008. I had a bachelor degree in the English language teacher field from the Hashemite university in 2001. In 2001, I worked as an EFL teacher for ten years, and I participated with the
British Council to train EFL teachers in Jordan and I am currently an assistant
professor at Arab Open University. I am interested in issues of EFL instruction, online teaching,
blended learning, literacy instruction, emergencies in education, and I have several publications related to teaching English as a foreign language.
I started teaching at Arab Open University - Jordan as a part-time tutor in 2016 till 2017, I taught communication skills in the English language at the department of English literature. Then, I started teaching at the department of education in 2017 till now as an assistant professor.
I have been an EFL teacher at public schools for ten years, then I participated in some projects implemented by the British Council to train English language teachers at schools. In 2010, I started working as a member of the Jordan National Commission for UNESCO. I also had experience in monitoring and evaluating funded projects by international agencies. I am also a reviewer in several international journals in the field of the English language.
