Researchers: Case Studies

Nazmi Al-Masri (Co-Investigator)
I work as Associate Professor of language teacher education for TEFL at the Islamic University of Gaza, Palestine.  Among the courses I have taught are research methods in TEFL and using modern technology and social media in TEFL.  This professional background and experience and the last two senior positions I have had over the last five years at the Islamic University of Gaza (IUG) have focused my attention more on the importance of multilingual dimensions and teaching Arabic for international learners.
