Thank you for visiting my website.

I am a PhD stuKim Beckerdent in Applied Linguistics & Technology at Iowa State University. My research interests include computer-assisted language learning and corpus linguistics.  I’m especially interested the use of ePortfolios for their potential to enable student reflection, self-assessment, and autonomy.  

After nearly ten years teaching ESL in various contexts, I decided to work toward my PhD. At Iowa State, I work as an ISUComm Online Learning Team administrator and a research assistant.

I live with my husband, two sons, five chickens, and twofam pet snakes in Ames, Iowa and can be contacted electronically at this link.
