I have been teaching and administering introductory writing programs at Purdue since 1981. In addition to teaching a variety of undergraduate composition courses, I also teach in the graduate Rhetoric and Composition program. My primary area of interest is composition pedagogy, and have regularly taught a graduate practicum in the teaching of composition. I also teach graduate seminars in Writing Across the Curriculum, Writing Assessment, and Composition Research Methods. In July 2002, I began a five year term as department head.
