The overall aim of the CoP is to provide a network in which academic staff can share their expertise, language skills to support each other in enhancing their teaching, scholarly work and professional relationships. Different forms of peer support and sharing will be offered. For instance, talks or seminars will be delivered by staff who are outstanding in teaching and by experienced staff who are editors and reviewers of international journals or funded GRF project leaders.
