Courses

I teach in courses in digital and technical writing, as well as College Writing I and II, Intermediate Writing, and Teaching Writing with Technology.  I have taught writing in computer-equipped classrooms since 1987, and on networked computers since 1988.


I use wikis, and in some cases weblogs, in the courses I teach.  I prefer using wikis over a CMS such as D2L or Blackboard.  On D2L, the workspace is separated from the course space.  On a wiki, the spaces students work in become part of the course.


Working on open wikis also means nearly all the course materials I work with are online and freely available under a Creative Commons license.
