Sawasdee Ka!! My name is Sansanee Punyalert. My nickname is Ying. I come from Thailand. I am a teacher teaching Business English at the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce in Bangkok. I started the SLAT program in the Fall of 2011 along with enthusiasm to pursue my interests and studies on second language learning and pedagogy.
Based on my belief, present-day students are natural multi-taskers and they innately use technologies to communicate and collaborate with others in the world of diversity, connection, production, and globalization. I have a desire to remodel traditional ways of teaching and learning literacies and communication practices for Thai EFL (English as a foreign language) learners by giving them more opportunities to enhance their communicative competence and new literacies as well as understanding the authentic language use in the real world. Hence, I have diverse interests which include a pedagogy of multiliteracies, digital literacies, game-enhanced learning, communicative competence, task-based language teaching, ESP (English for Specific purposes), genre-based pedagogy, and technology-mediated pedagogy.
