My Youtube channel

images     I like to use videos in my undergraduate and graduate teaching. I’m often on the hunt for short clips related to course themes that extend the readings that I assign. For example, David Crystal is a researcher with a particularly strong Youtube presence.  I really appreciate his videos because he presents complex ideas in straightforward ways. Here’s an example of one that I like:

But not all researchers have the same sorts of online videos. For example, I’ve seen Suresh Canagarajah speak in person on a number of occasions. He’s a fantastic presenter and I’d love to be able to share his talks with my students. I’ve looked extensively for videos featuring his keynote presentations but haven’t found any. He is just one example out of many. So, I’ve decided I’m going to start (trying to) film scholars and add them to my own Youtube channel. I’m not sure what the end result will be but, at the very least, I’ll have videos that are useful for my own teaching. And hopefully others will find them to helpful too.

In February 2015, Dr. Brian Morgan from Glendon College (York University) gave a guest lecture to my University of Regina graduate course in second language theory and research. I filmed his talk and am now getting around to uploading this presentation to my Youtube channel as a series of short clips. I hope I’ll have other videos to add over the next few years:

    Thanks for the wonderful resources right a click away. I’ve been looking for and learning the area of Second Language Acquisition and your work of collecting YouTube videos and recording talks and presentation would help anybody like me. Thanks again for your effort in creating learning resources.
