MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am currently teaching ESL courses at Les Roches Jin Jiang International Hotel Management College in Shanghai, China. One of the courses I am currently teaching is Hospitality English. This is like an ESP course which in our curriculum specifically in hospitality discourse.
I have been an advocate of the integration of ICT in language teaching. Many of my classes have been a combination of traditional teaching delivery with the integration of Computer Aided Language Learning. In fact, I am currently enrolled in the EdD program of Walden University and I have written in my Doctoral Development Plan is I want to purse in inquiry stance in the integration of ICT into Content-Based Language Instruction. Though I am still in the first stage in developing this topic inquiry, I am getting excited everyday as I read new articles and researches related to my topic.
Another this is that my school has purchased a Computer Aided Language Learning software (Auralog) which we are going to implement and use this coming new semester, March 2007. Everybody is very excited about the new venture our school is going to engage as this involves money (individual license of CALL is not for free to the students), teachers have mixed feelings and attitudes about the CALL, and many teachers are not up to the use of computer in teaching.
Because of this, I am planning to conduct a case study regarding our new program which is the integration of CALL (Auralog) to our English teaching curriculum.
It is my hope that by joining this group of intellectuals, I will learn more about the area which I am very passionate about - ICT in English language teaching.
