Teaching and Research Interests

Teaching interests are centered around best practices, in the classroom and beyond, for second language acquisition enhanced by cross-cultural sensitivity. Of particular interest is the feasibility and effectiveness of using social networking tools for instruction.

Research interests include new media technology applications to pedagogical methodology and materials and the impact of the philosophical and social implications of new media technology upon historical liberal arts curricula.
