Interests and Expertise

I teach a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate writing courses, most of which examine the relationships between writing and technology. Nowadays, I teach about half of my courses online.

Over the years, I’ve published scholarship about rhetorical situation, multimedia/new media, blogging, writing pedagogy, self-publishing, and “the profession” writ large. I edited (along with Charles Lowe) a collection of essays about MOOCs called Invasion of the MOOCs: the Promises and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses, which was published by Parlor Press in 2014.  I also wrote More Than a Moment: Contextualizing the Past, Present, and Future of Massive Open Online Courses published by Utah State University Press in 2019. Currently, I am researching and writing about the experience college faculty in the U.S. had teaching online during Covid.
