Great site!

I was reading an old student assignment 'proposal' and noticed that one student about 2 years ago did a research project on the Percussive Arts Society International Convention. He posted under the name 'Vince'. I'm doing research on the history of this convention for a summer course, and wanted to try and possibly get in contact with 'Vince' and maybe talk about his research. I haven't found any other research done on the subject, so figured contacting him might be worth a shot. Did he go through with the project? Do you still have an email address where I might contact him?

Geoff, I'll check and email you back in a private email. He may still be a student at IUP.

Best,

Lee

Hi iza,

Welcome to my blog and thank you for reading. I don't mind answering your questions at all. Rather than use a "teacher" or "student" centered approach to teaching, I use the "learning-centered" approach and try very much to encourage a love of lifelong, self-motivated learning in students. I teach undergraduate students at the postsecondary level from very diverse ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and geographical backgrounds and the literature and writing I teach is designed for improving "English for Academic Purposes" or EAP. I do use technology in the classroom but I don't let it overpower the class meetings. I usually create assignments that require the use of technology OUTSIDE of the classroom rather than IN the classroom. I hope this helps!
