After working for ten years as a graphic artist, Karen gained the RSA TEFL diploma (DELTA) and a BA in Linguistics and French which opened the doors to a career in language teaching.

A decade later, she left the classroom to focus on a career as a writer and consultant for teaching, testing and teacher training material. She has also been involved in the development of language test formats.

A qualified Gestalt therapist, Karen has an active interest in the workings of the mind. She particularly enjoys exploring how socio-psychological influences impact on young English learners, as well as sharing ideas for more creative, collaborative and communicative pedagogical approaches with EFL teachers.

Karen regularly speaks and runs teacher workshops in various countries on behalf of Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment.


 Developing ’life skills’ in the language learning classroom

The purpose of exams is to prepare students for using language in real life situations which demand a variety of skills, for example: creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking, this talk will explore the importance of bringing these skills into the classroom while considering the difference between the teacher’s role as both ‘instructor’ and as ‘educator’.

Our current students will most likely be required to be innovative thinkers, as well as flexible and adaptable in their future professions. They’ll also need to demonstrate collaborative application and effective communicative skills. Possessing ‘knowledge’ in an ever-increasing information-rich, AI-linked world of work is less likely to be as vital. Therefore we, as conscientious educators, should prepare our students as well as we can for their future.
