Dr. Hayward is an American applied linguist and discourse analyst who has lived and taught in several Asian and European countries over the past twenty years. He received his PhD from City University of Hong Kong and his Master of Arts degree from the University of Durham. Starting with his doctoral thesis, his research has focused on legitimation strategies that rationalize the internationalization of universities. He is especially interested in how universities in East Asia balance their traditional missions with new demands to project a global image and recruit international students. His doctoral thesis addresses this point head on as a longitudinal case study of an academic department at a Taiwanese university. In addition to this focus on the discourses of internationalization, Dr. Hayward has published articles on student mobility and study abroad, also within the context of a Taiwanese institution. Other research areas that he closely follows include digital literacies, learner autonomy in second language settings, and second language learner identities.
