Vincent Greenier holds a PhD in Language Teaching and Learning from the University of Auckland, where his thesis explored what constitutes creativity in language learning and the effects of the curricular approach on students’ creativity development. He has been a teacher for nearly 15 years, including time in the United States, South Korea, New Zealand, and now the UK. His main research interests are creative approaches to language teaching, individual differences and learner variables (particularly creativity), critical pedagogy, teacher identity, EFL/ESL curriculum and materials development and innovative approaches to qualitative research.
My research interests include creative approaches to language teaching, individual differences and learner variables, teacher identity, EFL/ESL curriculum and materials development, learning environments, and professionalism and leadership in TESOL. I am also interested in innovative approaches to qualitative research, including: visual research methods, narrative knowledging, participatory actions research, and others that incorporate methods from different disciplinary fields.
