The Feminist Scholars Digital Workshop is an online, interdisciplinary workshop for scholars and individuals working on feminist research projects. The goal of the workshop is to create an online space where participants can exchange scholarship and ideas. It is hosted annually by the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC). As the Founder and Director, I manage all major workshop events including creating and distributing materials, organizing participants into peer groups, and recruiting volunteers. I also use a range of digital technologies (e.g., Google worksites, social media, virtual maps) to manage administrative processes and to make the workshop accessible for participants.
As the Richard H. Haswell Distinguished Graduate Fellow, I helped coordinate Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) and Writing in the Disciplines (WID) initiatives and assisted in the programmatic assessment of the Junior Writing Portfolio. I also researched strategies for integrating e-portfolios into composition pedagogy and assessment practices.
The Avery Microcomputer Lab (AML) is a multimedia facility operated by the Department of English at Washington State University. The lab serves over 5,000 students and faculty annually. As the Assistant Director of the AML, my primary goals were to ensure that the lab functioned as a resource for students and faculty as well as a dynamic teaching and learning center. I worked closely with the Director to hire and train over a dozen lab consultants, manage scheduling and equipment needs, and oversee the day-to-day operations of the lab. I also developed workshops on computer-mediated teaching and learning for English faculty.
In this role, I assisted the Director of Composition in managing programmatic, committee, and administrative tasks as well as supported over 40 faculty members as they developed syllabi for first- and second-year writing courses; I also mentored new composition faculty. In addition, I spearheaded the creation of WriteClick, an online journal that publishes outstanding academic essays by first- and second-year students in ASU’s Composition Program.
As a Digital Media Consultant for Appalachian’s Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program, I created and coordinated interdisciplinary workshops to assist faculty in integrating digital and multimodal composing into their courses.
