3. Dr. Jonnie Hill

University of Szeged (Hungary)

The last three years of working in an adult literacy program have taken her on a bit of a professional detour.  In exploring adult education in America, she has attended many seminars, but in the hectic busyness of reporting, teaching, assessing, and being a resource for her colleagues for online teaching and testing during the pandemic, she has had little time for reflection and even less time for preparing my observations and findings for formal publication. The research she presents in the 2nd ICCSAL represents her thoughts and observations examined through the lens of current research regarding the influence of culture, equality, and conflict on language education. This research will bring together themes of my previous research: engaging language teaching methodology, technology, and culture. These themes have followed her as she has ventured into a world different from the familiar world of teaching English as a foreign language, where she spent more than two decades.
