Senior Instructor/DWS Director
As the Director of the Digital Writing Studio, I am here to help support faculty in planning and designing digital writing assignments. I have been teaching in FIU’s Writing Program since I was a graduate Linguistics student in 2009, and I have been a full time instructor since 2011. I teach various digital projects in my Writing/Rhetoric and Linguistics courses — e-portfolios, video interviews, blogs – where I emphasize rhetorically-minded design that allows students to critically examine the genre, media, and audience for their projects.
I am currently a senior at FIU pursuing a Bachelor’s in English with a track in Creative Writing, as well as earning certificates in Professional and Public writing and in Film studies. My experience in digital writing is mainly writing blog posts. Throughout my time at FIU I have developed an understanding of rhetoric and remediation. As a Digital Writing Studio Consultant here, I look forward to helping students in expanding their understanding to produce their own content on digital media.
Hello there! I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in English with a track in Writing and Rhetoric as well as a minor in Computer Science. My experience with digital accessories varies from creating my own website with blog posts, to a more formal business site, and the renowned PowerPoint and Prezi experiences. In being a Digital Writing Studio Consultant for FIU, I am looking to expand as well as aid students in their digital knowledge and ability to produce content on the web.
