Having started out in his career as a language teacher in school and
now a teacher educator at the National Institute of Education in Singapore,
Peter Teo has had the privilege to view teaching from both the practice and
theory perspectives. His postgraduate education in Macquarie University in
Australia and Lancaster University in the United Kingdom has also afforded him
a critical lens with which to view sociocultural and sociolinguistic phenomena.
His current work, both in teaching and research, converges on fields like
Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and topics related to critical literacy and
language pedagogy. He has published articles in Discourse and Society, Critical
Discourse Studies, Visual
Communication, Linguistics and
Education, Language and Education,
and Journal of Writing Research, and
has co-edited four books on language teaching and discourse analysis published
by Pearson-Longman and McGraw-Hill, respectively.
