This site serves a dual purpose. It houses my scholarship and provides some hosting of content that I have created for the courses I teach. The site is always in development. If you are looking for my publications, the easiest way to get them is via my CV. They are linked and stored online. Please notify me of dead links. Sometimes servers stop serving and I will not know unless I am told. I rarely check to see if all the links are still working– rarely being about once a year. If you are a student, it is more likely you are looking for course materials. Some are password-protected. See your syllabus for the password.

For more information about my research check out my research statement and my blog. Those provide a good introduction to where all my work is going. I consider my blog part of my scholarship and post about once a month. That is as much as I can muster while teaching and publishing in more traditional venues like journals and magazines.  I study how computer-mediated critical discourse (discourse learning) can be supported via design features. For example, in my dissertation I reconfigured components of YouTube to create collaborative video annotations (a dynamic discussion platform using speech bubbles) where expert (faculty) discourse appeared in set locations on a video timeline to prompt learner insights.
