This is the website for Professor Ted O'Neill at the Faculty of International Social Science, Gakushuin University. Official website is here.

I often split my time between central Tokyo and Okutama.

Academic interests include: educational technology, content and language integrated learning, open educational resources, and linguistic landscapes.

Note: Thanks to generous support from my university and faculty, I will be on sabbatical 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025. During the year I will be working on textbook writing and editing, studying Indonesian as a second language, and pursuing studies of the linguistic landscape.
