Innovating American English Outreach in Collaboration with the Private Sector

Westcliff University’s Dr. Julie Ciancio and Jennifer Hirashiki worked with a team of educators and administrators from the University of Pennsylvania, Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) International Association, and the University of Calgary to crowdsource advice from teachers around the world. The team created short videos with simple questions about teaching, and posed them to the American English Facebook audience of English language professionals. The group presented their project and its results at this year’s TESOL International Convention in Seattle.
