May 2015 to now

Chair, Hanyang English Film Festival organizing committee – engage both faculty and students in the advancement of 21st century literacies; responsible for delegating and coordinating responsibilities in a group of 20 volunteers on behalf of our department (of approximately 30 teachers and staff members) and the undergraduates of Hanyang University (approximately 24,500 students).

A detailed description of the most significant accomplishments for this project is posted on the Film Festival Project page

May  2014 to March 2015

Founder and co-leader, Basic Academic English Online Course Design Team – founded the redesign team by reaching out to a colleague whose background and educational philosophy are very different from mine because I reasoned that, with mutual respect, professionalism, and compromise, we would be able to design a course that would have the broadest possible appeal to our very diverse faculty of instructors. I also expected that I could broaden my own perspectives and develop professionally by working closely with a respected colleague who doesn’t happen to think the same way as me. During the term of this project, we regarded each other as equal partners, actively engaged and solicited input from the other instructors in our department, and completed the project before deadline with an online course that exceeds the standards and expectations of our colleagues and department heads.  

Aside from choosing a great partner, perhaps the single most significant achievement in this project was my ability to negotiate the inclusion of more interactivity into the course. The E-learning  department that hired us had originally stipulated that there should be only one solitary professor appearing on camera and that he/she should deliver all the course content in the form of lectures and presentations. Because of my MET training at UBC, I knew this was the wrong approach and was able to skillfully negotiate an agreement for a different approach by building in and demonstrating increased interactivity in our pilot lesson.

January 2013 to August 2015

Graduate Student at the University of British Columbia – participated in numerous group projects for various major assignments. The frequent collaborations with colleagues from all over the world were excellent opportunities to learn about different worldviews and philosophical perspectives on education. Because I prefer the clearer transmission of subtle nuances and body language that video conferencing provides, it was especially rewarding when some other less experienced group members would agree to, for their first times ever, collaborate synchronously via Skype or Google+ Hangouts. Helping others to advance their technological skill sets is one of my greatest pleasures in professional life.

Some of the key roles are described (with artifacts and reflections) in the Competencies and Projects section of this site.

February 2012 to Now (continuing)

Workshop Facilitator and Technology Mentor at Hanyang University – gave presentations, talks, and facilitated several workshops for technology related PD activities
