Adolescent Literacy and English Language Arts

On July 1 2008, I began a tenure track position as Assistant Professor, Adolescent Literacy and English Language Arts. I am interested in looking at ways in which we can engage adolescent learners, classroom teachers and faculty in literacy projects that allow us to further develop a pedagogy of multiliteracies. After visiting Southeast Asia, in particular, Cambodia, I have developed a keen interest in how we might collectively engage in projects with underdeveloped countries, leveraging the approaches afforded through technology in ways that serve to enhance the richness that reciprocity offers.
