About Jennifer

I’m a Lecturer III of Technical Communication in the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan, where my pedagogical interests lie in honing students’ revision practices and refining job application materials. I aim to create a student-centered, collaborative professional learning environment for my students that is rigorous and applicable to life outside of my classroom.

Before coming to U of M, I taught a variety of literature, humanities, writing, and communication courses in Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan and I previously taught at a conventional and International Baccalaureate high school.

I have research interests in digital pedagogy and outcome-based curriculum revision.
