I have bridged theory and practice in my teaching by integrating meaningful Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and intercultural instruction. In alignment with most of my research and theoretical frameworks, I attempt to enhance language learners’ intercultural competence, develop language abilities via sociocultural learning theories, and use a bridging-activity framework in CALL so that learners are able to transfer the skills they acquire in the classroom into the real world. In addition to teaching international sections of Writing and Rhetoric I and II and Oral Expression, I created and developed new curricula at both the Department and College levels. I developed and taught the curriculum titled “U.S. Academic Language and Culture” for first-year undergraduate and graduate students from our international partnership universities, namely Beijing Film Academy, Beijing International Studies University, and Tongji University. At the college level, I coordinated the Summer Intensive Program and co-taught the “Summer Intensive Program: U.S. Language and Creative Industries in Western Markets” for incoming international students whose language proficiency did not meet the college benchmark. As director of the EAL program, I also designed and led global education teacher training and professional development workshop series. I have demonstrated my leadership skills by providing training and support for faculty members working with international students in both the EAL and Writing and Rhetoric programs, such as multilingual writing pedagogy workshops. Another crucial role I provide is to serve as a bridge between faculty members and international students, particularly when students are struggling with academic work and adjusting to the target language culture.
