Welcome to my page. I am passionate about all things Education and Language. I am a sociolinguist, life-long learner, educator and one of those who have largely benefited from further education to get to where I am. Having both Education and Language got me out of my little home town in Japan to travel far, encounter and learn from countless (but memorable) wonderful people and places. I am now in a fortunate position to daily engage with and research about the Learning and Teaching in Higher Education. I’m currently working as Director, Digital Learning within the central L&T unit, Deakin Learning Futures at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia. I contemplate a lot about how digital pedagogy, educational technology and interculturalism might intersect to enhance and innovate learning and teaching practices at universities.
Feel free to have a look into this space and contact me if you have any questions.
