Bridging the Digital-Analog Divide in Your Classroom
My scholarly research focuses on the folkloric character of the devil in medieval and early modern literature, up through Milton, where I argue the characterization gets frozen.
However, I was a high school teacher for twelve years, and an adjunct professor for two, so teaching is also very important to me. While I look forward to teaching courses that are more along my research interests, I also love teaching First Year Composition. I love using popular culture to get students to like and use writing. I like catching students their first semester, because I think this can be instrumental in shaping how they view writing the rest of their college careers.
Tomorrow, I was asked by our Core Writing group to present on how to integrate technology into your classroom, and how this can bridge the divide between more analog professors, and their digital students.
