...innovative technologies in education...

Learning languages prepares students to succeed in a highly globalized world.  Over seven years of experience teaching in higher education has convinced me that every student has the capacity to acquire a new language. I also believe educators have the responsibility to make higher education accessible. I am passionate about integrating innovative technologies in education to ensure all students have access to higher education.

Global Distance Education Project - Sri Lanka

One of my most recent global distance education projects has been co-designing a distance course in the Moodle E-learning management system for the National Institute of Education in Sri Lanka.  We created a Community of Practice for teachers of English as a Second Language that will enable teachers to share ideas and insights from the different regions of Sri Lanka.  This project, or TESL Community of Practice, was presented to the Sri Lankan Ministry of Education on January 21, 2010.
