Dr Andrew Johnson
My doctorate is in literary studies and philosophy and have been teaching in various language and learning roles since 2002. I have a strong teaching and research focus on writing, and I am also interested in cultures of learning and the way we learn to use language in different social and professional contexts.
As well as teaching and coordinating units in Academic and Professional Writing, I teach a 2nd and 3rd year on career development (linked especially to professional communication); supervise HDR students from a range of programs (focusing as part of supervision teams on helping students to develop as academic writers), deliver HDR writing workshops for Arts students, and have developed an online academic english program for all Monash students (Ascent).
My current research projects include looking at encouraging and assessing class participation as part of developing professional capacities, comparing approaches to curriculum development in writing, and critical study of ‘communication’ as a graduate attribute.
Dr Matthew Piscioneri
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. His research examines the internationalization of universities, ethical issues in student care, the delivery of teaching and learning resources at university and tertiary reading requirements. 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.
