Daiju Hoshino was born in Japan and spent my life there until the end of high school. To broaden my perspective, I decided to study abroad. I received both a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Science from the University of Texas at Arlington. When I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant, one of the students told me that I inspired him to seriously pursue science. This led me to make my final decision to be involved in education. After graduating from college, I returned to Japan to work at Shonan Seminar, Inc., which has more than 300 schools throughout Kanagawa prefecture, and is one of the leading education companies there. Through intensive training, experiences and achievements, I was promoted to the highest rank in instruction. I was also involved in starting up a company that provides data analysis to educators and students. To further broaden my capacity to serve a community with education, I moved back to the United States to learn more about higher education and how education can change a community and a country.
While serving as a department chair and an instructor of Biology, I frequently offer workshops to increase the knowledge of technology literacy, pedagogy, assessment, and recently Generative AI (mainly text-to-text) among my colleagues.
