Writer/teacher/scholar, formerly a nontraditional student, more interested in the teaching-learning process all the time. I operate a Ning network called The Deep End of the Pool, dedicated to scholarly rigor and situated-learning design in the teaching of college writing,; and I maintain a blog about the ins and outs of teaching writing as an overworked adjunct, In the area of IT, I'm looking into virtual environments (look for me on Second Life as Ungo Azambuja), prd's, and the animation of grammatical transformations.

Areas of Interest: 
learning theory,
teaching writing,
virtual environments,
situated learning,
Buddha Dharma as an educational philosophy
