Dr Paul Black (保罗)
Technical consultant, in Darwin

Paul is a linguist who completed his doctorate at Yale in 1975. After linguistic research in Ethiopia and Aboriginal Australia in the 1970s, he began teaching in the 1980s, increasingly in applied linguistic areas. In 1989 he completed a Graduate Diploma in TESL, after which he taught English in Japan from 1991-93 and again in 2003. From 1990 to 2015 he was a Senior Lecturer in Language and Cultural Studies at (the now) Charles Darwin University, where after his retirement he has continued as an Honorary Fellow.

Throughout his career Paul has studied a variety of languages. His publications include papers on Ethiopian and Australian Indigenous languages as well as on the teaching of English, Chinese, Indonesian and Japanese, the latter often co-authored with research students or other colleagues, including the Director of the Eastern Road Language Centre.

Paul not only provides the Centre with advice on language teaching, but he also supports the Centre's use of information technology, including its website. (You can thus blame him for any deficiencies in this area.) Although not an IT specialist, he has worked with computers since the mid 1960s, has been developing web pages since the 1990s, and has experience teaching online since about 2005.
