Kate M. Donley has been at Norwich University since 2007, and is a Lecturer in English.
Growing up in the culturally diverse city of Chicago inspired her to major in linguistics, join the Peace Corps, and pursue a master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language and applied linguistics from Northern Arizona University. She has specialized in teaching and designing advanced English language courses for international and multilingual students, which she has done at Norwich along with several highly accredited intensive English and academic bridge programs.
Over more than a decade as a lecturer in the Department of English and Communications, she has taught students in introductory courses including advanced academic English, freshman composition, public speaking, and technical and professional writing. As a fan of experiential learning, Donley incorporates exciting events and projects into her classes, such as the World Languages Fair, a campus-wide video contest and festival highlighting language as an academic, intercultural, and career resource. Her professional activities include teaching in the graduate program in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at Saint Michael's College in Colchester, Vermont. She has published academic articles on college composition, TESOL curriculum design, vocabulary acquisition, corpus linguistics, and Sherlockian scholarship.
