Welcome! I am a professor of undergraduate Spanish and of graduate ESL teacher education at Albright College in Reading Pennsylvania. As you see in the above photo, I love to travel abroad with my daughters. I especially enjoy working with EFL programs in schools and universities abroad, and I am a frequent presenter for conferences for EFL teachers in Mexico, Peru, and Chile. Albright College students have accompanied me to study, work on research projects, and to tour in Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, and Chile.

My areas of special interest are integrating technology in foreign langauge instruction, and assessment of student learning at the course and program levels. I also enjoy learning about and sharing cultural perspectives with my students -- in the US I teach cultures of Spain and Latin America, and abroad I help teachers integrate US culture into their instructional programs.

At this website, I've posted several presentations from recent conferences as well as an extensive database of links that are useful for foreign language and ESL/EFL teachers. You can contact me at kjogan@alb.edu
