While I can't say I'm at the level of the top international scholars who are regulars on CNN, I can't say I've never been in the media either. Here's a small sample of print articles, radio shows (for these two, click on the images for the links), and TV shows and videos in which I have appeared. I also feature a description of how my social media trail operates on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Check the links below to access the media samples:
I use both Twitter and YouTube for academic purposes. I also have two Medium blogs for academic and personal stuff (I still have a Facebook profile but I'm on hiatus indefinitely). Here's the detail of my (academic) social media trail:
- @elpatronhimself mixes both personal and academic tweets from time to time.
- @lslplegion is the official handle of the award-winning Literacies in Second Languages Project research lab. Anything and everything related to literacy research and second language education will go through here. I also use @lslplegion to amplify some of the activities my students carry out in my Methods and Approaches in the Teaching of Languages at UPB (you can see what I've posted there using the hasthag #MATLUPB)
My YouTube trail features two channels:
- The eponymous channel for EPH Productions, where I feature tribute videos I make, playlists for my students' assignments, and other academic and personal resources.
- The LSLP Channel, which includes videos of what we do at LSLP and the LSLP in Session webinar series, which features Colombian and international scholars talking about literacy, language education, and qualitative research.
