Natalia V. Smirnova
Natalya V. Smirnova is doing her Post Graduate degree in the field of English as Second Language Teaching.
Natalia believes that media literacy is seen as a key competence and higher education specialists should foster students' skills of self-regulated distant learning. Overall, ICT tools allow for developing the whole set of higher order skills such as critical thinking, reading and writing, and self-regulated learning.
Natalia has been actively teaching with ICT (LMS platform, blended learning) as well as researching the effects of incorporating ICT into the educational process.
Natalia has undertaken a number of "ICT in the classroom" courses and she is currently a teacher trainer of a similar course.
She has been involved in a number of innovative projects such as e-learning courses design for the National Research University Higher School of Economics.
The main research interests are related to self-regulated learning, e-teaching and e-learning of English for Specific Academic Purposes.
