Profile

At the core of my interest in teaching diverse learners is the development of writing program assessment that is both responsive to student cultures, literacy practices, and oriented towards learning outcomes and program goals. An interest in pedagogical approaches to writing and humanities instruction has led me to think about - and advocate for - inclusion initiatives in the classroom. The role of technology in the literate lives of participants in digital spaces is another of my research considerations, stemming from an interest in examining the use of social media as a teaching tool.
