This thesis aims to explore the continuing professional development (CPD) of expatriate teachers employed in the foundation English as a Foreign Language (EFL) programme of federal universities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In order to understand the phenomenon of CPD from the perspective of experienced teachers in the context, this study explores their perceptions about CPD; along with their choice of CPD initiatives and the reasons and factors which impact on their choice. It also explores teachers' suggestions about improving CPD in their context. The results of the study are expected to create awareness of these aspects among the community of experienced EFL teachers, their institutions and the local CPD organisations. Findings are also expected to raise implications to consider for improving the CPD experience of teachers in the context.
