Teaching

I am an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Asian Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. I received my Ph.D in Linguistics from the University of Toronto in Canada. I also earned a certificate to teach Korean as a second language, while I studied for my M.A in English Linguistics from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in South Korea. Prior to joining Pennsylvania State University, I taught Korean language courses at all levels to heritage and non-heritage learners at the University of Toronto.

I am interested in the integration of technology and language learning. For example, I have used digital storytelling and video projects, as innovative pedagogical approaches to engage students in deep and meaningful L2 learning as they practice writing and speaking. In addition, to help learners improve L2 speech perception and production, I have developed a web-based auditory training program and used it in the classroom.
