Welcome to the homepage of Hayo Reinders. I am TESOL Professor and Director of Research at Anaheim University in the US annd Professor of Applied Linguistics at KMUTT in Thailand. I founded the Institute for Teacher Leadership (www.teacherleadership.ac) to empower teachers and learners with research and leadership skills. I am a passionate believer in the power of out-of-class learning.

If you have an interest in innovation in education, in the role of technology, in Learner Autonomy and Self-Access, or in teacher leadership and educational sustainability, you have come to the right place. On this site you will find articles, research reports, bibliographies, a blog, and many other resources. You can also find information about engaging me as a speaker at your conference, or for (staff) development projects. You can watch an introduction video here.
