Graduate Course Development
- Web Application Development (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM580, 1 Section)
- A production-intensive course in applied theory and practice of developing web-based applications, emphasizing interface and experience design using HTML5, CSS3, and the DOM; and backend development using Ruby-based web application frameworks.
- Rhetoric of Technology (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM532, 1 Section)
- A course in designing with cutting-edge communication technologies (particularly Ruby and git), emphasizing design practices informed by rhetorical principles that lead to pleasing and useful digital designs.
- Instructional Design (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM535, 1 Section)
- A graduate course in a conceptual approach to the process of instructional design, featuring studio-style, project-driven class meetings for exploring and practicing the design of instructional materials and learning objects.
- Key Concepts in Technical Communication (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM521, 1 Section)
- A foundational seminar in a selection of foundational scholarship in technical communication, with an emphasis on engaging the professional discourse of technical communication in published and electronic environments and learning to write in essential scholarly genres (reading notes, conference proposals, annotated bibliographies, and the bibliographic essay).
- Online Design (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM530, 3 Sections)
- A graduate seminar in the theory and practice of structuring and designing information for web-enabled devices. This course emphasizes web standards, accessibility, and rapid prototyping.
- Publication Management (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM537, 1 Section)
- A graduate seminar in intensive work developing and using systems to produce and manage documents delivered electronically and in print through single-sourcing methods and technologies. Theory and practice of managing publication projects across groups and organizations.
- Information Structure and Retrieval (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM541, 1 Section)
- A graduate seminar that introduces technical communicators to leading methods and technologies for creating, manipulating, and sharing the structure of information and documents.
- Knowledge Management (Illinois Institute of Technology, COM542, 1 Section)

- A special topics graduate seminar that investigates the nature and production of open source technologies and intellectual property, and the ethics and legalities of open source as it impacts various professions, including technical communication.
- The Rhetoric of Design (DePaul University, MA Program in New Media Studies, NMS 509, 1 Section)
- This graduate seminar addresses the DePaul New Media Studies program’s need for a theory-driven multimedia production course. Students are specifically encouraged to interrogate the rhetoric and ethics of production. Class time is structured as a combination of graduate seminar discussion and art studio: by moving fluidly between discussion/reflection and hands-on work for course projects, students enact the important connections between theory and production. Instruction in new media technologies is guided primarily by students’ own interests and needs, which they determine as they move through the course projects.
Undergraduate Course Development
- Multimedia Writing: Web Standards Edition (Purdue University, Elective in PW Undergraduate Major, ENGL419, 1 Section)
- This course is a signficant revision of my previous Multimedia Writing courses by more consistently and thoroughly following World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards for Web languages. The course’s two central concerns are that students develop a sustainable set of Web and digital writing skills that are not tied to any specific software package, while also gaining a better foundation for critiquing and implementing various technologies as warranted by particular rhetorical situations. Course readings focus on the history of the Web and other digital writing environments, the application of Web standards, and experience design; course projects are geared to students’ interests and professional development in a variety of fields, from Professional Writing to Computer Graphics Technology.
- Multimedia Writing (Purdue University, Elective in PW Undergraduate Major, ENGL 419, 3 Sections)
- This course engages students in simultaneous visual and text production using Macromedia Flash. Students are encouraged to explore the use of visuals, video, and audio; and to develop material treatment strategies for repurposing visuals and text for different electronic media and print. Course readings from the history of multimedia reinforce students’ ongoing negotiation of rhetorical and technological concerns as they move through course projects.
- Technical Writing with Web Standards (Purdue University, PW Undergraduate Major Course, ENGL 421, 1 Section)
- This course helps students develop rhetorical strategies for shaping technical writing to suit a range of readers, for multiple purposes, in a variety of technical contexts. Students approach technical writing through the W3C’s often impenetrable documentation for Web languages and protocals, providing the opportunity for students to address common technical writing challenges while interrogating technologies and languages that are shaping the practice of digital technical writing itself.
- Introductory Composition: Rhetorical Situations, Real Texts (Purdue University, ENGL 106R, 1 Section)
- Developed as a common syllabus approach adopted by Purdue’s Introductory Writing Program, this course encourages students to write in rhetorical contexts where they live, learn, and work. Course assignments require students to compose using visuals and text, and encourage the critical use of technology.
- Introductory Composition: Horizons Learning Community (Purdue University, ENGL 101R & 102R, 4 Sections)
- This course helps first-generation college students from diverse backgrounds make the transition to college and writing in academic environments. By encouraging students to first begin writing to familiar audiences from back home, students develop a stronger concept of audience and the problems of language and context.
Other Courses Taught
