M.A. Spanish, University of Western Ontario
I have been a professor of Spanish, French and Modern Greek for over 20 years. My current interests include integrating technology into language learning, adaptive methods of teaching to international students, particularly L2 and L3 learners, and Multi-Lingual Communication in 21st Century Technology and Business. I make use of tablets, mobile devices and various apps, and teach an SMS (texting) mini-course in Spanish and French. In today’s constantly-changing technology-concentric world, I believe our task is to communicate more clearly and more effectively, so this fun and interactive mini-course addresses that need. I also make use of social media as a learning and collaborative tool to keep my students connected and on-track.
