Anaheim University recently celebrated the graduation of 10 Doctor of Education and Master of Arts in TESOL students in Fullerton, California on August 1, 2015. The ceremony was held as part of Anaheim University's 4-day TESOL residential session. At the ceremony, two of our MA in TESOL graduates talked about their experiences at Anaheim University and their post-graduation career plans:
Akira Kurosawa, one of the most influential directors in the history of film, will again shape a generation of filmmakers through a medium that Kurosawa himself might only have imagined: an online MFA program in Digital Filmmaking. Aspiring filmmakers will learn their craft by studying with experts in the field, including hours of never-seen-before footage of Kurosawa on the set, allowing students to go behind the scenes and learn visual articulation directly from the master.
In March 2015, Anaheim University professor Andy Curtis was inducted as President of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) International at the TESOL 2015 International Convention and English Language Expo in Toronto, Canada. He joins Dr. David Nunan, Dr. Kathleen Bailey, Dr. MaryAnn Christison, and Dr. Denise Murray as the fifth TESOL President currently teaching at Anaheim University’s Graduate School of Education.
Dr. David Nunan received the James E. Alatis Award for Service to the field of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at the 2015 TESOL International Convention in Toronto, Canada. The award was named for Dr. James E. Alatis, a charter member of TESOL International and a champion of TESOL teachers and their professional needs. Dr. Alatis, who passed away on Feb. 28, 2015, served as TESOL's first executive director from 1966 to 1987, when TESOL first established this service award.
