Biography


McCoy-Bae is interested in pedagogical approaches using technologies to promote a collaborative learning environment which would foster interpersonal and cross-cultural communication in a classroom and help students develop intercultural competence.  She's also interested in neologism, a.k.a., newly-coined words by digitally comfortable young generations in Korea and in the U.S.  She loves teaching and learning about teaching, but she is also passionate about learning foreign languages herself as  she believes that learning foreign languages broadens and enriches the mind with new perspectives and opens up the heart to a new world.  She had taken German, French, and Latin in colleges; Japanese in high school.  In her free time, she loves walking her two doggos, spending time with her family, reading, sewing, and gardening.
