Biographical details

During her university undergraduate career, Lesley majored in Indonesian and German and then began a teaching career that took her across Australia, teaching Indonesian and German at primary, secondary and tertiary levels.

Her work with language-teacher education developed through positions she has held since the mid 90s in teacher-education faculties at the universities of Tasmania and Sydney.

For 15 years, until early 1990s, Lesley edited Pelangi, a publication for the teaching and learning of Indonesian in Australian schools published at the University of Southern Queensland Press.

Lesley continues to research in the areas of language-teacher education, intercultural-languages education, bilingual-immersion education and study-abroad short-term programs for language teachers.
