Lecturer IV of Spanish
Office Location(s): 4036 MLB 1275
Although my Ph.D. is in Colonial Latin American literature, my focus as a course coordinator has been in curriculum development and in the creation of instructional-technology applications. Most of my reading is of contemporary short stories from Spain and Latin America, which I use to teach reading literature at the introductory level. I am writing an introduction to reading fiction textbook that combines Ken Walton’s theory of fiction as a game of make-believe and Roland Barthes' structuralist technique in S/Z.
I have used various technologies to develop applications for teaching Spanish grammar, reading Spanish-language literature, and improving conversation and pronunciation. My principal objectives are to use the most appropriate technology and to fully integrate the resulting applications into my courses. CRLT asked me to create a website as an example of faculty uses of instructional technology. This website will provide an idea of some of my uses of Power Point, the web and other technologies.
