Hsin-han Hung is a Fulbright FLTA Scholar (2020-2022) who taught Chinese language skills and promoted intercultural communication at the University of Miami. She also served as the military language instructor (2019-2024) for the United States Department of Defense’s summer overseas Chinese program (Project Go).
Before graduating from Kaohsiung Normal University-Graduate Institute of Teaching Chinese as a Second/Foreign Language, she served as an Event General Coordinator leading Taiwan’s folk-dance representatives at the National Festival in Spain and Italy. Ms. Hung believes cultures are inalienably associated with languages; therefore, her teaching philosophy seeks to leverage an appreciation of the cultures surrounding language while developing a student's potential and learning style to achieve language proficiency.
She incorporates interactive activities and technology to strengthen learning and retention of the material. To meet her teaching goal of promoting students’ communicative competence, she uses a task-based approach to engage students in meaningful real-life tasks that integrate their development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
Her teaching and research focus is on multimedia-assisted materials and virtual reality technology related to computer-assisted language learning (CALL). CALL seeks to integrate language skills through multimedia and create a more authentic learning environment using a wide variety of media.
