Research Overview

One of my recent interests is in the area of virtual exchange (or telecollaboration). This involves connecting students in Japan to students in other countries over the internet. My students have collaborated with peers in the UK, USA, Columbia, China, and the UAE.

I also have a keen interest in Extensive Reading. The basic principles of ER are that students read massive amounts of text that they have selected based on interest and language level. One area of ER that I research is implementation. I am concerned with how teachers can better support students to develop positive habits toward reading books in English. I am also interested in connecting ER to classroom tasks, such as discussion, writing, and projects.
