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.

Dr Matthew Piscioneri lectures in Academic and Professional Writing at Monash University, Australia. He obtained his doctorate in Philosophy in 2004 from the University of Queensland, Australia where his dissertation developed a critical reading of Jurgen Habermas’s Theory of Communicative Action.
Recently he has been part of a major research project evaluating student preferences for modes of teaching and learning resource delivery: [www.teachanddelivery.net].
“My research interests and my teaching are closely linked. I am presently engaged in a critical study of the ‘international’ academy as well as the pre-commencement academic orientation of international students. Come and join us on FaceBook: THE Monash Arts International Students Group”.
