MY RESEARCH

A through-line of my research is my interest in writing knowledge development, for both students learning college and professional writing and instructors who teach those students how to write in college and beyond.

My research on writing development takes three forms, investigating how

  1. Composition curricula impact students writing knowledge development; ​

  2. Students transfer their writing knowledge across concurrent and vertical contexts; and

  3. Visual concept mapping influences students’ writing knowledge development and writing knowledge transfer.

MY SCHOLARSHIP

My scholarship is guided by my interests in writer development across multiple sites and contexts, and my contributions to the field are grounded in empirical data.

 

My interests are interdisciplinary in nature, since writer development is not bound to the English Department, yet I continue to come back to the composition classroom as a site of inquiry due to its rich history and influence on the field of Writing Studies.
