専門分野及び主な研究テーマ 1. CALL(Computer-assisted Language Learning) I am interested in Moodle an open source LMS software. I feel that this software makes it possible to increase the amount of interaction I have with individual students.
2. Virtual Exchanges: I want to examine how students communicate in English, online with students from other cultures and the impact it has on their motivation to study English.

自己紹介と学生へのメッセージ I first came to Japan and Obihiro in 1983 to work for a small English conversation school, but joined Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine in October 2008. This makes me a long time resident of Obihiro, but a relatively new person to the OUAVM.
I did my undergraduate studies at Pacific Lutheran University, where I majored in history and political science. After graduation I spent a couple of years working seasonal jobs and traveling in Europe and Asia. These travels exposed me briefly to many different peoples and cultures, but I decided I wanted to live in a country for at least a year to experience everyday life more fully. I initially came to Obihiro (the sister-city of my hometown) on a two-year contract, but ended up staying three. In those three years I became more interested in Japanese history and culture. It was then that I decided to return to the United States to get a Masters in Japanese Studies at the University of Michigan. After completing my studies in Michigan my wife and I made the decision to live in Japan, but not in a big city like Tokyo or Osaka, so I returned to the language school where I had taught before. I stayed there for over 20 years, teaching and working as the manager of the adult education program.
At the university I teach English Communication 1, 2 & 5 and English Communication for Science in the Graduate School. The goal for all my classes is to make them interesting and challenging, so that when students finish they have a feeling of accomplishment. I also hope that they are able to use English more effectively as a communication tool. I am also one of the members of the English Resource Center where I am responsible for English Lunch and the monthly Travel Talks. I hope you will join us at these activities.
Of course, I have many hobbies that keep me busy throughout the year. I play tennis, enjoy camping, gardening and I am a weekend carpenter. One of my dreams is to build a tree house, but I haven’t made much progress with this project.
