Conference Presentations

Each year, Dr. Kim does a lot of conference presentations with her research team. Students are able to take these opportunities to take part in the front-line research work and to boost their academic experiences. The team has attended AERA, one of the most prestigious educational conferences, as well as other prestigious conferences including LRA, AAAL, and TESOL, just to name a few. Come and join us to become part of this fantastic and rewarding experience!
