Dana Gierdowski, PhD!

HolodeckRegular classroom got you down? Need advice about how to redesign your teaching space? Feeling stuck behind the podium? Are your students computer-human assemblages who face away from each other and into the icy void of cyberspace? Ask Dr. Dana Gierdowski!

Dana defended her dissertation, titled Geographies of a Writing Space: A Study of a Flexible Composition Classroom, this past Wednesday, and she passed with flying colors. Dana’s committee members were Chris Anson, Bob Beichner (Physics), Deanna Dannels, Vicki Gallagher, and Susan Miller-Cochran (chair). Dr. Gierdowski’s research focuses on how reconfigurations of learning space can also change the writing and learning experience. We wonder–when will the first year writing course invest in a holodeck?
