As past Writing Program Administrator, I worked closely with many academic departments interested in supporting the writing and communication abilities of their students. For many years, I worked with Integrated Learning Communities for at-risk entry-level engineering majors, overseeing development and use of a curriculum adapted specifically for this group. I continue to analyze data from research studies exploring challenges and identifying at-risk characteristics among students in first-year writing courses. Presently, I work on an initiative focused on writing in the disciplines as part of our university’s Higher Learning Commission 10-year re-accreditation cycle. As Borderlands Writing Project Director, I also work with K-16 teachers to strengthen quality in using writing in their courses to help students learn, regardless of discipline.
I am a cognitive psychologist with a primary interest in human memory.
