Dr Ana Zeron

Teaching Fellow - Course Organiser (French) - Dissertation Supervisor for MSc in Language Education


I joined The University of Edinburgh in 2009 as a French teacher for the Office of Lifelong Learning. Previously, I taught French as other language at the University Sorbonne-Nouvelle (Paris 3) and in Chile at the French Chilean Institute.

Now, at the Centre for Open Learning, I am the Course Organiser for French and a UCAS Adviser for the International Foundation Programme. I teach the Languages and Cultures course for the Access Programme.

I also supervise Master's Dissertations for the Language Education programme at Moray House School of Education and Sport. My students' research interests are in the areas of language and the learner, interculturality, learner and teacher identity, and professional practice.

Before coming to the UK and after completing my Doctorate in Education, I participated in academic research projects in Chile, Brazil and France. My areas of interest were teacher training, learner experience, violence and authority in schools, and education for peace.
