I’m a teacher and teacher trainer with a background in business English teaching. Every summer, I love going back to work as a pre-sessional lecturer in EAP (English for Academic Purposes) at Warwick University, UK. I’m a consultant, working for many organisations including the British Council. I’m also a Director of Pete Sharma Associates Ltd, a consultancy and training organisation.
I love giving presentations and have given plenary talks, keynotes and workshops around the world. I have a particular interest in using technology in language teaching and many of the books I have co-authored are on this area. My current areas of interest are in Blended Learning, mobile learning, AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality).
In the so-called divide between theory and practice, I’d say I’m a practitioner, but not averse to contributing to the literature as evinced by my co-authored chapter in the Routledge Handbook of Language Learning and Technology. I was the Newsletter Editor of the IATEFL CALL Review (2008-2009) and have a Masters in Educational Technology and ELT from Manchester University.
