What I’d like to achieve is the development of a personal philosophy of global communication a) examining how we write, speak, learn, and communicate while b) experiencing/exploring other cultures via language studies and acquisition, travel, and living/working abroad and c) using these experiences as both teacher and learner; to combine my background in psychology, counseling, web technology, and human development to create a multi-disciplinary TESOL pedagogy.
Help! Can you offer some advice?:
1) Which academic discipline would most closely accept/foster these ideals and experiences?
2) Help me learn about others who have had similar philosophies by recommending authors and readings in relevant genres.
