I am May Kristine Jonson Carlon, or simply, May. I work as a postdoctoral researcher with a Ph.D. in Global Engineering for Development, Environment, and Society from Tokyo Institute of Technology in the Department of Transdisciplinary Science and Engineering under the School of Environment and Society. I work with Professor Jeffrey S. Cross studying educational technology, specifically on improving the online learning experience through the use of metacognitive prompts, adaptive learning, and harvesting of implicit feedback through natural language processing. I started in October 2022 as an online education specialist at Tokyo Tech's Online Content Research and Development section where I had been working as a teaching assistant during my doctoral studies and as a volunteer shortly after. I am also teaching information technology courses at Hosei University's Global and Interdisciplinary Studies.


TALE 2022: Innovating Your Course Design – Why Bother? And Where to Start?

Our colleagues from the University of Hong Kong have generously invited me to join them in organizing another workshop for TALE conference. Our lead in this effort, Donn, brilliantly talked about how edtech can help innovating course design with a demonstration of Miro . Leon demonstrated how to use Mentimeter , which is a tool that I have heard for the first time from him. In this workshop, I introduced how Canva can be used in the classroom, specifically in creating an infographic syllabus. With two workshops and one full paper presentation, I'd say my TALE 2022 was uber-productive.
