About Jonathon S Reinhardt

Jon Reinhardt teaches courses for English undergraduate, MATESL graduate, and SLAT PhD graduate students, primarily focused on teaching languages with technology, sociolinguistics, and teaching English as a foreign language. His research interests lie in the relationship between technological change and the theory and practice of technology-enhanced second and foreign language pedagogy, especially with emergent technologies like social media and digital gaming. He sits on the editorial boards of CALICO Journal and Language Learning and Technology, for which he serves also as Book Review Editor. He is serving as Vice-President of the Computer Assisted Language Instructional Consortium (CALICO) in 2018-2019 and will be President the following academic year.
