Julie Ann Madewell
Julie Ann Madewell has been teaching Spanish to undergraduate students at Indiana University since 2006. She earned her B.S. in Spanish and Photography at Middle Tennessee State University in 2005, and then taught English as a Second Language for one year at the Instituto Ramiro de Maeztu in Madrid, Spain before coming to IU where she completed her M.A. in Hispanic Linguistics in 2008. Julie's teaching and research interests are: immersive technologies in the foreign-language classroom, individualized learning programs, learning analytics, service-learning projects, and study abroad/language immersion programs. She has taught for several study abroad and language immersion programs including: Indiana University Honors Program in Foreign Languages, Council on International Educational Exchange, Austin Peay State University, Middlebury Summer Intensive Language Program, and IU Department of Spanish and Portuguese.
She is the course supervisor of all sections of the S105 First-Year Spanish accelerated course. During the fall semesters, she teaches the Honors section of S105 as a class based on active learning and a backwards course design. During the spring semesters, she teaches S315 Spanish for Business and she is developing a short-term service-learning study abroad program for this course beginning next May, thanks, in large part, from a grant received from the Office of International Affairs in the College of Arts and Sciences. She is currently creating a two week Spanish-language immersion program for high school students to take place on the IU Bloomington campus beginning next summer.
