Hello everyone! Thanks for reading my blog!

I’m a foreign language teacher since 2007. I started teaching in PA, USA, where I used to live. I live now four years in Antwerp, Belgium. I’ve always been passionate about languages. That passion led me to the teaching career, and teaching led me to my fascination with educational technology. As a first, second and third-year teacher probably :-)  I was more worried about getting down the basics, finding my way, following the trends.

I’ve been ready quite some time to take a different step now. This blog is a part of that; it is a way to share my ideas, experiences and hopefully to inspire others. I’ve recently been (re)inspired by the ADDIE instructional design model as this has helped me make learning tasks and the use of technology meaningful to students. You can read more about that on my very first post. This page is more meant to be a short introduction of myself. So maybe I should have started by saying that I’m Carolina Egúsquiza, 31 years old, originally from Lima, Perú. I lived 8 years in PA, USA and now I live in Antwerp, Belgium. Why? Yes, a guy, a Belgian guy: Stefan. He’s the father of my two lovely sons!

This blog is also meant to be a personal portfolio where I’ll not only post ideas and material on language teaching but also on the evolution of my PhD research, as a sort of self-reflection and self-evaluation. It is also a space to share interesting resources and to eventually create and add my own…

Please feel free to comment on any of my posts, to ask questions or to make suggestions. Thanks!

One thought on “About me

  1. Good afternoon, Carolina!

    I’m writing to alert you to the publication of a new book by Mary K. Long: Language for Specific Purposes: Trends in Curriculum Development. Given your interest in LSP, I believe this book would be of interest to you as well as your EdTechDesign readers.

    Language for Specific Purposes provides curricular models for language programs that build practical language skills specific to a profession or field. Contributions in the book reinforce those models with national survey results, demonstrating the demand for and benefits of LSP instruction. With ten original research-based chapters, this volume will be of interest to high school and university language educators, program directors, linguists, and anyone looking to design LSP courses or programs in any world language.

    For more information on the book please visit the Georgetown University Press website.

    If you should have any questions regarding this publication, would like to request a review copy of the book, or would like to get in touch with the author for an interview, please feel free to let me know.

    Best,
    Audrey Smith
