My teaching methodology depends on task-based, collaborative and communicative methods, in which I purposefully integrate web based tools and curricula designed for personalize learning. My students can get into contact with me any time during my teaching hours and get help any time.
I have been working as teacher of English for eight years now. I taught English for all levels of learners. Number of the students I taught was between 200-300 in yearly bases. I took two bachelors degree and a teaching certificate. Nowadays I am about to finish my second M.Sc. degree on computer education and instructional technology.
I want to sum up my educational and professional background as well as my proficiency in the field of English language teaching as a foreign/second language. During my bachelor education at Karadeniz Technical University, I studied on English language and literature. I attended very informative courses on linguistics, language education and English literature. I also got a formal certificated education on English language teaching as a foreign language. I went abroad as an Erasmus student in 2006. During my Erasmus studentship at TU-Chemnitz in 2006/7, I found opportunity to focus more on language teaching technologies, sociolinguistics and its particular study areas. Accordingly, technology integration to language teaching and linguistics, culture and social studies have been my research/practice areas and interests. I wrote my BA thesis on teaching pronunciation in 2008 and it was then published on-line by IDEA (International Dialects of English Archive at University of Kansas).
I got my second bachelor's degree in the department of Sociology of Distance Education Faculty at Anadolu University in 2014. I took English language training courses for TOEFL (iBT) exam at British Culture Language School and Middle East Technical University located in Ankara. I have recently graduated from English language teaching department at Ufuk University as my first M.A. degree. I wrote my M.A. thesis on diagnosing linguistic transfer in September, 2016. During my research for my MA thesis, I have explored Turkish educational system and educational institutions have got a lot to do with linguistic transfer as well as transfer of learning of the participants of the study. On the other hand, I am currently an M.Sc. student at the department of Computer and Instruction of Educational Technologies at Hacettepe University, Turkey.
I also attended German language courses in Goethe Institut–Ankara for four years and now I have intermediate level of German. I participated in many national and international academic activities on language teaching/learning so far. In September, 2011 I took part in Fall School on Multilingualism by LiMA at University of Hamburg in Germany. I am also an active member of three non-governmental organizations on education, English language teaching and Linux as a free processing software. I have written academic papers on English language teaching, Lexicology, Pragmatics, Sociolinguistics, English literature, Linguistic Transfer, Collaborated Learning and learning management systems such as Moodle and Oxford English Testing service.
Between 2009 and 2015 I worked as an instructor of English at Hitit University in Çorum, Turkey. Now I am a teacher of English and have been working for a high school for about one year. I have taught English for Turkish learners of English in levels ranging from elementary to upper-intermediate. I got education on multimedia language laboratories at Hacettepe University in accordance with the multimedia project held by Turkish Higher Education Council in 2012. I am closely familiar with language teaching technologies and soft-wares such as Moodle, Oxford Testing Service, Sanako, NetLanguages, Adobe Connect as well as Praat, AntConc, JASP, PSPP, for research purposes. I can also use HotPotatoes, eXe learning and many web services such as British Council, BBC English Learning, for educational purposes. I believe language education can be supported by new technologies and contribute a lot to improve their English proficiency, maximize transfer of learning and to detect linguistic transfer.
I am closely interested in new researches and papers on this field of English language teaching, technological integration into educational curricula, educational systems and assessment methodologies. Therefore, I have been following national and international conferences, academic activities on these subjects and noting active participation for many years now. In July, 2013 I attended an academic conference in Trabzon and I presented one of my studies on Moodle's position in the development of autonomy and motivation of the learners. My paper was published by Open Journal of Modern Linguistics.2 I conducted another study on the integration of Raspberry Pi and Chamilo LMS to English language education at Hitit University for OKÜP-2015 in 2015.3 I have also introduced a bilingual e-bulletin on free/open soft-wares together with my students.4 I still keep studying on web-based learning/teaching technologies and improving new curricula for my courses, which could be more beneficial for the learners from different levels of English language. Nowadays, I have been studying on two more academic papers that are going to be published very soon.
