Biography

Dr Minh Hue Nguyen is a lecturer in TESOL Education in the Faculty of Education at Monash University. Her research, supervision and teaching are in the areas of second language teacher education, second language teaching and learning, and researcher development. Minh Hue teaches on undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Faculty of Education.

Prior to this appointment, Minh Hue worked in TESOL curriculum development and teacher development projects and taught English language, linguistics, academic skills, research methods and TESOL pedagogy at various universities in Vietnam and Australia.

Minh Hue is interested in creating productive learning experiences for preservice teachers to transition effectively into the teaching profession. She is passionate about finding ways for institutions to support both preservice teachers and mentor teachers in this transition. Minh Hue's research has focused on preservice teachers' professional learning in the TESOL practicum, including emotional experiences, identity development, professional growth, mentoring support, and the extent to which TESOL curricula cater for the learning and teaching needs of preservice teachers. Her most recent project looks into how EAL and content area teachers collaborate in catering for the learning needs of EAL students from refugee backgrounds in the Science classroom. Minh Hue is also interested in understanding and supporting researcher development, especially teachers' development into/as researchers. Much of her research is interpretive and underpinned by a sociocultural and activity theoretical framework.
