Personal profile

Biography

Dr Lynette Pretorius is the Academic Language Development Advisor for the Faculty of Education at Monash University in Australia. She works with both undergraduate and postgraduate students to improve their academic language and literacy skills. 

Selected recent publication: Wellbeing in Doctoral Education

In recent years, wellbeing has been increasingly recognised as an important area in doctoral education. Yet, few resources exist to help those who support doctoral students. Through reflection and narration of personal experiences, this book provides a voice to doctoral students to advocate for an improvement to their own doctoral training environment. Both the struggles and the strategies for success highlighted by the students are, therefore, invaluable not only for the authors, but also their families, their social networks, and academia more broadly.
