Janene van Loon

Persoonlijk profiel

I studied History and English at the University of Northern British Columbia in Canada and emigrated to the Netherlands in 1999. At the University of Groningen I obtained my Master's degree in English as well as an English teaching qualification. My area of expertise at the Language Centre is lecturing ‘Academic Skills in English’. I focus primarily on communication and presentation skills for English as a second language, which I lecture to students of International and European Law and students of Business Administration [KT1] .

Blended learning, a task-based approach and online course development are important aspects of this job. I described this teaching approach together with three co-authors in the book Academic writing in English: A process-based approach. This book is intended as a guide and source book for teachers of English. The textbook is specifically targeted at Bachelor's and Master's students in higher education.
