Teaching Interests

Active pedagogy, engaged teaching, modern and contemporary drama/playwrights, teaching Shakespeare, and drama/film adaptation

Research Interests

My teaching and research interests straddle both literature and pedagogy. My research particularly focuses on the use of drama as a pedagogical approach. Drama and other active strategies help students engage with texts, ideas, and meaning-making, certainly with dramatic literature but also with fiction, poetry, and writing. I'm also interested in dynamic learning communities, creativity in student learning, and realism in modern/contemporary drama.
