Assistant Professor

Moonyoung Park formerly served as Associate Professor at University of Aizu, Japan. He has also taught English for EFL/ESL secondary and college learners in Korea, Thailand, and the U.S. The courses taught include Advanced English Grammar, Thesis Writing, and Academic English.
Research Areas
His research has been focused on computer-assisted language learning, language test development and validation, curriculum and instructional design, and task-based language teaching. His recent research on “Development and Validation of Virtual Interactive Tasks for an Aviation English Assessment” has been benefitted from application of the argument-based approach, evidence-centered design, task-based performance assessment, and 3D virtual environments to develop an interactive aviation English assessment in a virtual environment for non-native English speaking air traffic controllers.
