Welcome all and all welcome Jim Zvi!

6 Sep

We are thrilled to introduce Jim Zvi, RISD’s Assistant Director of English Language Learning (ELL). Jim will work in this new position as an educator and advocate for RISD’s ELL students.

Jim comes to us with fifteen years of international English teaching experience, most recently at Hong Kong Polytech, where he’s worked with Design, Architecture, and Engineering majors.

Here last week for International Student Orientation, Jim shared resources, advice, and some very funny jokes, putting into action one of his own research topics: “Humor, Controversy, and Avant-garde Delivery: An Approach to Teaching as a Performance.”

Jim will start full time on November 1. Until then, please contact Writing Center director Jen Liese with any language-related questions at jliese@risd.edu.
