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. Lately I’ve been focused on Massive Open Online Courses and online pedagogy more broadly. 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 a book called More Than a Moment: Contextualizing the Past, Present, and Future of Massive Open Online Courses published by Utah State University Press in 2019.
