Conference Schedule

No upcoming events.
Welcome to my official website. I hope this provides you with an opportunity to get to know me a bit better. Please keep checking back for updates on my most recent endeavors.
A little bit about me - I am Chair of the Research Committee, Director of the MA TESOL Program, and Director of the David Nunan Institute for Language Education at Anaheim University, an online university based in Anaheim, California, where I have been teaching online in its cutting edge MA TESOL program since 1998. I am also Professor Emeritus at the University of Hong Kong where I served as Chair Professor of Applied Linguistics and the Director of the English Centre for several years. Prior to this, I was Director of Research and Development, NCELTR, and Coordinator of Postgraduate Programs in Linguistics at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. I have published over 100 books and articles in the areas of curriculum and materials development, classroom-based research, and discourse analysis. My recent publications include What Is This Thing Called Language? (Palgrave Macmillan), Practical Teaching: Grammar (McGraw Hill), and Learners' Voices: Difference and Diversity in Language Teaching. Cambridge University Press (with P. Benson). My textbook projects include ATLAS, Go For It, Listen In, Speak Out and Expressions, all published by Cengage Heinle & Heinle, formerly Heinle & Heinle/Thomson Learning. Go For It was selected and adapted by People's Education Press as a basal textbook series for middle schools in China. I was also President of TESOL 1999-2000.
I hope you enjoy you my website and I welcome you back to be a regular visitor.
