John H. Noonan

Senior Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes, Duke Kunshan University

John Noonan's interests lie in the areas of English language learning for the purposes of journalism, communications and various forms of mass media. In particular, he is interested in English language environmental writing, media ethics, visual media production and experiential learning.

Prior to attending journalism school, Noonan obtained a TESOL certificate, and has taught ESL for over 20 years, from Istanbul, Turkey, to New York City.
