rofessor Floyd Curtis Background简介

Professor Floyd Curtis is the Departmental Coordinator of EAP programs at St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario, Canada (http://www.stclaircollege.ca/). He has been working in the field of language acquisition for more than twenty years in Canada and Europe.  He has degrees and certifications from California State University, Cambridge University, Athabasca University and Brock University.   He has taught extensively to adults of all varying levels of English proficiency and designs outcome based curriculum at his institution.

His lecture will be about the Canadian approach to teaching language in a communication-based pedagogy and some observations he has made in teaching a great number of Chinese students over his career.

This is his fourth visit to China. He enjoys Chinese culture and history and is always curious to learn more.  Having taught many different nationalities over his career, he is continually learning and experimenting with new ways to approach the classroom.  One of his favourite quotes is by the educator, Will Durant, who said, “Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.”

In his free time, he enjoys travelling, reading and raising his two boys with his wife, Naomi, a French Immersion Kindergarten teacher.
