I am Professor Emerita of English at Tidewater Community College (TCC). Between 1978 and 2005 I taught writing, literature, and humanities and directed the Writing Center and Writing-Across-the-Curriculum, Online Learning, and Distributed Teaching and Learning. I was among the earliest faculty to teach computer-enhanced and Web-based online classes. My academic experience includes writing and editing of scholarly articles and book chapters, book collections, and keynote talks, presentations, and workshops in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand with a focus on using electronic communication and digital portfolios for active learning. From 2005 until 2008, I taught English at Clemson University, where I founded and directed LitOnline, a professional development project for faculty planning to teach online.
Recent publications include “The Poetics of Computers: Composing Relationships with Technology” and “Reflective Webfolios in a Humanities Course.” I am co-editor and a chapter author of Learning Literature in an Era of Change: Innovations in Teaching and co-editor of Electronic Communication Across the Curriculum.
