PhD research

Exploring Factors that Influence Experiences of Assessment Feedback among International Students in the UK.

This study aims to understand the assessment feedback experiences of the students who are studying in EAP programs in the UK, with specific relevance to their academic writing. It takes the feedback experience as an anchoring point since research indicates that feedback has a powerful influence in shaping the entire student learning experience.

I have worked as a teaching assistant and then as a lecturer at the Department of English in AlBaha University where I taught various modules.
