Writing about Teaching
My work as a teacher has been informed by my research, but increasingly I find myself closing the feedback loop by writing and presenting on my teaching. I have given presentations and led workshops on topics including information literacy, teaching with technology (digital audio production, WordPress blogging, Google Docs, etc.), and teaching with archives and rare books. I have included links to articles, interviews, and conference papers connected to my teaching, as well as brief information on works-in-progress. I welcome comments and questions on all of the materials given here.
