The UD Associate in Arts Program is pleased to welcome Stasie Harrington, Ph.D., who joined our faculty in January as assistant professor of Spanish. She will be teaching Spanish I in the spring 2021 semester.
Dr. Harrington, who grew up in New Cumberland, Pa., earned her B.A. in Spanish with K-12 teaching certification from Shippensburg University. She earned her M.A. in Spanish Literature and Ph.D. in Spanish Applied Linguistics from Penn State University Park. She has held faculty appointments at the College at Brockport SUNY, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, and Alfonso X el Sabio University in Madrid, Spain. Prior to joining the AAP in January 2021, she was an assistant professor of Spanish and Director of International Student Progress at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green.
Dr. Harrington’s research interests include second-language acquisition and language teaching methodology, and she has extensive, hands-on teaching experience in both Spanish and English as a foreign language (EFL).
In addition to her faculty appointments in the U.S., Dr. Harrington has spent a number of years living and teaching in Spain. As an undergraduate at Shippensburg, she studied abroad in Valencia in her junior year. During her Ph.D. program at Penn State, she returned to Spain as part of a yearlong graduate exchange program, studying applied linguistics and teaching English at the University of Salamanca.
After moving to Spain in 2002, Dr. Harrington worked as a language coordinator and English professor at Alfonso X el Sabio University in Madrid. She then joined ESIC Idiomas, the language-teaching department of ESIC Business and Marketing School in Madrid, in the role of Director of Curriculum and created their business English curriculum and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) preparation course. In 2004, she began working for the British Council, an international cultural- and language-education organization, and spent the next four years there, working with English-language learners of all ages. She returned to the U.S. in 2008 after accepting a position with the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
In addition to her scholarly publications, Dr. Harrington has co-authored and contributed to a number of textbooks, multimedia educational activities, and other pedagogical materials. Her most recent publication, El cine documental: Spanish Language and Culture through Documentary Film (2016), is an innovative text that integrates language instruction with a diverse collection of documentary films from the Spanish-speaking world.
The faculty, staff, and students of the AAP offer a warm welcome to Dr. Harrington as she joins our program, and we look forward to working with her in the future.
