Other research projects

This page links to various older research and teaching projects in which I have been involved. These include:

The psychological capital of modern language teachers across the career trajectory

  • Project funded by the Fonds zur Förderung der Wissenschaftlichen Forschung (FWF), with international collaboration (University of Leicester, UK)
  • Duration: September 2017 – August 2020
  • Funding: € 400,000

I was involved in preparing the original submission (2017), for which I had oversight of the drafting of the literature review, I revised the literature review, and wrote substantial parts of the research methods, disemmination, and impact sections, as well as the budget. I had a leading role in revising the proposal for resubmission in 2018, which involved taking a lead in responding to reviewer feedback and revising the budget. (More information)

My duties involved assisting in the project preparation (September 2016-March 2017), co-ordination of activities and training staff (March 2017-June 2017), and I continued to be involved in an ad hoc advisory capacity until leaving the University of Graz.
