TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Ball State University
ENG 699:

Contemporary Theories of Comp

This graduate course covers past and current theories in the field of Composition, exploring the way those theories shape the work and identity of the field as a whole and the teaching of writing in particular. To begin, students analyze and discuss watershed moments and different paradigms that together form a master narrative for the field. Next, students challenge this master narrative by considering what and who has been elided, how, and why, and to conclude, they consider current and future directions for the field.

ENG 605:

Teaching in

English Studies

This graduate course is designed to help current and future teachers of Composition understand better and implement effectively informed ways of knowing and doing in the teaching of writing. To that end, students not only explore different theoretical movements in Composition but also use them as a lens to examine, reflect on, and refine their own pedagogical practices.

ENG 231:

Professional Writing

This undergraduate course focuses on, and works to help students navigate effectively, professional rhetorical situations. To that end, students learn what it means to write for and with others, how to design and create content for complex environments, and how to analyze as well as write in select print and digital genres that constitute the professional sphere. Throughout, students learn how professional genres serve specific purposes, address and fulfill audience expectations, communicate information both alphabetically and visually, and function as social responses to rhetorical situations common to the workplace.

Writing Technologies

In particular, the course explores (1) the evolution and intersections of writing technologies; (2) the personal, social, participatory, and political implications of not only writing technologies but also contemporary digital literacy practices; and (3) the disciplinary consequences of writing technologies generally and the emergence of the subfield of Digital Rhetoric specifically.

ENG 604:

Teaching with Technology

This graduate course proceeds from the idea that our notions of literacy and our pedagogical practices must account for and reflect changes in our writing technologies. To help students understand better and teach effectively with technologies, both old and new, this courses (1) surveys the development of writing technologies historically and the implications this has culturally, cognitively, subjectively, ideologically, and educationally, and (2) explores ways to teach and to assess multimodal and digital texts.

ENG 213:

Digital Literacies

This undergraduate course (1) asks students not only to challenge the traditional understanding of literacy as the ability to read and write but also to identify and practice emerging digital literacies; (2) introduces students to a brief history and some select theories of media; and (3) helps students define, recognize, and understand the motivations behind disinformation and fake news. Overall, the course pushes students to explore and grapple with the social, political, economic, educational, and ethical implications of digital literacies.

Intro to Rhetoric and Writing

They (1) explore the relationship between epistemology and rhetoric during Ancient Greece; (2) engage with, think about, and apply 20th Century postmodern theories and texts in the rhetorical tradition; and (3) read about, analyze, and employ threshold concepts in Writing Studies.

ENC 1101:

First-Year Composition

This undergraduate course introduces students to central theories and concepts in rhetoric and composition—such as rhetorical situation, genre, epistemology, audience, remediation, and multimodality—that they draw from and utilize in the composing of their own texts.  During the course, students write in different genres, participate in multiple workshops, and come to see good writing as that which responds appropriately to the given rhetorical situation.

ENC 1102:

First-Year Composition and Research

Building upon the rhetorical foundation established in ENC 1101, this undergraduate course focuses primarily on the practice of research.  Students compose research projects in print and repurpose such projects for another medium; during this process, they grapple with questions such as what constitutes good research, why research is important, and how one locates, vets, and cites appropriate sources.  ​
