    Hello, I hope you have found my profile easily enough. My name is Wayne Malcolm, and I have been the JALT Director of Program since 2019. In this capacity I oversee the organizing of the main annual international conference and educational materials exhibition. Along with leading the conference team, I am also a member of the JALT Board of Directors. I from the United States where I lived in New York State. I have a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Syracuse University; a Masters of Management - International, from the University of Phoenix School of Advanced Studies; and a Doctorate of Education specializing in leadership as it pertains to curriculum and instruction. My dissertation study was about gauging the value businesses find in students who participated in university study abroad programs. I also wanted to know about how the students who studied abroad understood the concept "global competency*. My current research revolves around these topics.
