Connecting Diverse Perspectives in Teaching Writing

Eli Hinkel, Ph.D.

Eli Hinkel has taught ESL and applied linguistics, as well as trained teachers, for almost thirty five years.  She has published numerous books and articles on learning second culture, and second language grammar, writing, and pragmatics.  Her recent books deal with research in second language learning, the effects of culture on teaching and language learning, approaches to teaching L2 grammar, language features of L2 written text, and practical techniques for teaching L2 academic writing.  She is also the editor of the Routledge ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series of books and textbooks for teachers and graduate students.  A respected speaker, she has presented widely in North America and many countries around the world and was one of the invited speakers for the 2012 TESOL International Convention in Philadelphia.  We look forward to having her address us on the topic of “Connecting Diverse Perspectives in Teaching Writing.” http://www.elihinkel.org/
