Gloria started teaching overseas in the late nineties in rural China. Her fondness for teaching and the splendour of the country, took her to various universities throughout the country for several years. Her interest in second language acquisition and education drove her back to Europe where she developed her expertise in the field of further education and training. She trained teachers in Spain and taught EAP courses in the universities of Durham, Sheffield, Aston and Birmingham before joining XJTLU. Today she is finalising her doctorate in higher education with particular interests in the impact of academic culture in transnational education and innovative initiatives that aid collaborative teaching.
