Currently my interests center on the role of thinking and language (the classic concept of logos) in teaching, learning, and society. I have continued my interest in English education but have evolved, as well, special emphases on classical rhetoric, the history of liberal education, composition/honors pedagogy, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. I am currently working on two long term projects: a digital, multi-modal platform for teaching first-year writing (in first edition now with Vizi Learning Systems) and a monograph on the nature of liberal education for the 21st century.

In addition to my teaching and research, I currently serve as interim director of the Indiana Writing Project.
