Oluwatoyin Margaret Olanipekun

 

Everyone calls me Toyin. I received my BA and MA in Education and English from Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife. For my MA, I assessed the English Language Teacher Training program in the faculties and colleges of education in Osun state, where I, among other areas, evaluated how the program improves pre-service teachers’ communicative competence. My research interests have since evolved into transcultural communications, discourse analysis, language teacher education, and Yorùbá pedagogy.

I have taught the English language in about 5 secondary schools in Nigeria and Yorùbá at the University of Michigan, through the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Fellowship. I have also taught both languages through various online platforms. I will be teaching Yorùbá at UW-Madison this year.
