Dr Andrew Johnson

Andrew  JohnsonI have  a background in literary studies and philosophy and have been teaching in various language and learning roles since 2002.

I joined the Faculty of Arts in my current role in 2007.

I have a strong teaching and research focus on writing, and I am also interested in cultural learning processes and the way we learn to use language in different social contexts.

My current research focus is on how we teach (and how students learn) academic writing, and as part of this I’m especially interested in how lecturers assess and give feedback on aspects of student writing such as grammar, expression and academic style.
