Dr. Kristin Hoyt is Associate Professor of French and Foreign Language Education. She teaches methods courses for both undergraduate and graduate FLED programs and also teaches various levels of undergraduate French. She serves as the FLED Coordinator for Field Experiences and is collaborating with Dr. Terantino on a research project related to innovative work using the Instructional Rounds Model for the field experiences component of FLED methods courses.

Dr. Hoyt has prior K-12 teaching experience and has broad experience with pre-service and in-service language teachers, as well as international visiting educators teaching foreign languages in US schools. As she continues in this work, much of her current outreach focuses on supporting professional exchange with foreign language teachers in P-12 schools and strengthening P-16 partnerships in and around metro Atlanta through collaboration; and currently, she is serving as Chair of KSU’s FLED Advisory Board.

Dr. Hoyt is engaged in ongoing classroom-based research related to advancing intercultural competence in language learners and has presented and published on her work. She is also engaged in a scholarship project with Dr. Patricia Bullock related to the infusion of diversity issues in teacher preparation program curricula and field experiences, which draws on her service as co-chair of the PTEU Diversity Committee for four years.
