Lisa teaches in both the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program and the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program in the Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures. She earned her Master's degree in TESOL and Applied Linguistics from Indiana University (IU) and thereafter taught in the Intensive English Program at IU. She has taught English as a Second Language in multiple contexts, both stateside and overseas in China, Spain, and Lithuania. Her academic pursuits lie in aiding non-native speakers of English in their successful acquisition of the language and in training new TESOL teachers to do the same. Her research interests include the integration of Second Language Acquisition theories and practice, as well as the effects of perception training on production intelligibility and accentedness.
