I love teaching writing, helping students improve their media literacy, advocating for Open Access, and collaborating with other teachers. I currently serve on the National Board of Directors of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT) and on the International Advisory Board of the International Academic Forum (IAFOR).
