I currently teach Elementary Russian I and II at Michigan State University. It is a technologically enhanced course based on the brand new online textbook “Mezhdu Nami” which allows us to teach communicatively, flip the instruction to a large extent (my immediate supervisor, Dr. Shannon Spasova, is an amazing material developer) and apply the principles of task-based language teaching in the classroom. I have also published a review of the textbook in “Language Learning & Technology” (Vol. 21, #1).

In the past, I taught pedagogical grammar online at MSU and various EFL, ESP and Russian as a second language courses back in Russia for which I had to develop materials and workbooks, some of which are still actively used by my colleagues at the Petersburg State Transport University.
