The first encourages school students to learn a new language at University, the second uses a VLE to link pupils in secondary schools with undergraduates and teachers of the target language. The innovative OnStream project facilitates on-line collaboration between teachers of Russian in three sectors, HE, secondary and supplementary schools.

For the previous ten years, he worked as a Research Fellow in the Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning at University College London, attracting funding from a range of external sources including ESRC, the CfBT, the LWWCETL, Routes and Links into Languages and the Sasakawa and Nuffield Foundations. 

The work involves organising extensive cross-sector collaboration between teachers with formative and summative evaluation for the funding bodies.

In addition, funded by an ESRC small award, he has conducted research into factors affecting recruitment to HE courses in the less widely taught languages and, for UCL, investigated its Personal Tutoring system.  He has published in ReCALL and the LLJ and earlier this year contributed a chapter to “Telcollaboration2”, Peter Lang, 2010.
