Student Centredness, International Graduate Centre of Education

Be supervised by Ania

Dr. Ania Lian is one of the key senior staff in the International Graduate Centre of Education, College of Education.

Dr Lian coordinates the Master in Education (International) course, through to the development of the Higher Degree Research supervision culture, building Higher Degree Research students’ capacity, as well as develops international links with South-East Asian countries, especially Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Dr Lian has a high international profile in the areas of Computer Assisted-Language Learning (CALL), student-centred second and foreign language pedagogies, and English literacy and academic writing.

Increasingly, her research includes projects investigating quality assurance in higher education curricula. In 2017, Ania was awarded a highly prestigious Australia Awards grant, linking Charles Darwin University with universities in Cambodia. The grant focuses on the skills, processes, and systems necessary for developing new academic courses with curricula based on international standards.

Dr Lian works with a great number of PhD students. Her own most recent CALL research includes a “reading for emotion” method that she developed to support students’ language and literacy skills. Her other innovation links neuroscience and CALL for providing student-centred approach to academic writing
