I am Professor of English-as-a-Foreign/Second Language (EFL/ESL) Teacher Professional Development in the Department of Instructional Systems Technology (IST), in the School of Education, Indiana University. My research focuses on the different types of pedagogical insight that emerges from formal and informal educational experiences of foreign and second language teachers. I research also the pedagogy of online foreign/second language teaching.
The courses I teach at the doctoral level, are related to research on language teacher education and professional development. At the masters level, I teach EFL/ESL instruction and assessment approaches, content-based language instruction and teaching English in global contexts. I usually assume a blended load i.e. I teach face-to-face (on- campus), online and/or hybrid classes (combined on-campus and online classes).
