I thrive on change and have seen much of it in my teaching career. I am learning to teach in three evolving learning environments: face-to-face, online, and now inworld (immersive).
My research interests focus on how the virtual can enhance the actual (and vice versa) when we learn and teach in online 3D virtual environments. My primary focus is on how we can learn through literature and how we can use new technologies and media to explore multiple realities and encourage critical literacy and social justice.
I developed the Bookhenge on the NC State Wolflands in Second Life as a sanctuary where we can contemplate the literature we read. Come join me.
