Andy Gao

Associate Professor

I am an EAL teacher educator at the School of Education, University of New South Wales Australia. I have been involved in language teacher education in a variety of contexts. I have directed teacher education programmes at the University of Hong Kong and led professional development seminars on autonomous language learning, language learning strategy and reading for language teachers in places such as Hong Kong, mainland China and Taiwan. My research interests include international students’ educational experiences, language learner autonomy, language education policy and language teacher education. Over the years, I have been promoting sociocultural perspectives to understand language learners’ strategy use and language teacher identities. Relevant publications have appeared in journals such as English Language Teaching Journal, Journal of Language, Identity and Education, Language Teaching, Language Teaching Research, Studies in Higher Education, System, Teaching and Teacher Education, and TESOL Quarterly. I have received a total of 1.73 million Hong Kong dollars from competitive research funding bodies including Research Grants Council (Hong Kong), Sumitomo Foundation (Japan), and the Standing Committee for Language Education and Research (Hong Kong) to support my research. I co-edit System: An International Journal of Educational Technology and Applied Linguistics for Elsevier. I am a co-editor for the English Language Education book series at Springer. In addition, I serve on the editorial boards of journals including Asia Pacific Education Researcher, Journal of Language, Identity and Education, and Teacher Development. I was the Faculty’s Outstanding Young Researcher (2015) at the Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong, a co-recipient of TESOL Award for an Outstanding Paper on NNEST issues (2012-2013), and have been named as one of 30 Up and Coming at TESOL International’s 50th anniversary.
