Getting organized

I've been in Hong Kong for over two months. I'm honestly going to start writing in my blog more.

I have a terrific job at City University of Hong Kong. I teach a lot of writing courses, such as Written Language and Writing Academic Essays. Also, I teach Speaking, and something called Independent Learning. There's a lot of other things going on at the university: committee meetings, teacher development sessions, etc. Sometimes I feel incredibly frustrated by all the things I have to keep up with. But I like the job, and I enjoy the challenge.

Humanising Language Teaching webzine has published one of my articles, titled "Brainstorming Activities for Group Discussion". You can see the article here:

Actually, the activities in the article were originally part of the manuscript for my book THE CREATIVE CLASSROOM. My publisher at Lynx Publishing decided not to include them, so I passed them on to Humanising Language Teaching. Look for more of my writing in future issues of HLT.
