Anne Burns began her career in TESOL and Applied Linguistics working as an English teacher in France, Kenya and Mauritius, where she lived for five years. In the 1970s she set up her own primary and junior high school with another colleague in Mauritius. That school, Alexandra House School, still continues today.

After moving from the UK to Australia with her family in the early 1980s, Anne worked in the New South Wales Adult Migrant English Service, teaching newly arrived immigrants and refugees to Australia for eight years as a teacher, assistant principal and teacher educator. The NSW AMES is part of a national program, the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) funded by the Australian Government to assist new arrivals to learn English for settlement.

In 1990 Anne joined the Department of Linguistics at Macquarie University, Sydney, and worked in the National Centre for English Language Teaching and Research (NCELTR) as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer. There, she coordinated the Professional Development and Research Section (1992-1998) and then became the Associate Director (1998-2003). At the same time she taught in the Department of Linguistics as a Senior Lecturer in the Applied Linguistics programs. 

In 2003 Anne was appointed as Chair and Professor in the Department of Linguistics and was the Dean of the Division of Linguistics and Psychology from 2000-2005. She has also held Adjunct Professor positions in the School of Educational Studies at La Trobe University (2000-203) and in the School of English and Applied Linguistics at UNITEC, Auckland (2003-2005). In 2006 Anne was appointed an Adjunct Professor at the Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) at Macquarie University.

Some other recent appointments include Board Membership of the Extensive Reading Foundation, a non-profit organisation for the support and promotion of extensive reading.

In 2006 Anne was appointed a member of the TESOL Research Standing Committee, and since 2009 I have been the chair of this committee. She is also a member-at large on the AILA Executive Board (International Association for Appiled Linguistics) 

In June 2010 she was appointed as Professor in Language Education at Aston University. She is also an Honorary Professor at the University of Sydney and continues her links with Macquarie University as an Honorary Associate in the Department of Linguistics.



Joan Jamieson (Ph.D. in Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Education, University of Illinois) is Professor of English/Applied Linguistics at Northern Arizona University. In the MA-TESL program and the doctoral program in Applied Linguistics, she teaches classes in CALL, second language testing, and research design and statistics for applied linguistics. Joan has been involved in several research and development projects in these areas, as reflected in her publications.
