Yu-Ju LAN

TELL Lab Director

Prof. Yu-Ju Lan is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Applied Chinese Language and Culture at National Taiwan Normal University. Before becoming a professor at the university, she had been teaching in two different elementary schools in Taiwan for over 20 years. This experience has motivated her to develop different platforms to meet different language learners’ multiple needs. Her research interests include language learning in virtual worlds, mobile learning, and online synchronous teacher training.

Since 2009, she has been leading the team of the NTNU TELL Lab responsible for carrying out various projects of using technology to enhance language learning. These projects and studies include how to efficiently and effectively use mobile-learning (ML) devices and virtual worlds (Second Life) to improve foreign language learners’ language proficiency. The research outcomes have been published in leading international journals, such as Language Learning & Technology (LL&T) and Australasian Journal of Educational Technology (AJET).

Through the years, Prof. Lan has been developing platforms and tools to integrate information technology with language education. All the platforms, along with the instructional designs, were practically used in various elementary schools and universities. The research outcomes have been highly valued.
