Associate Professor / Director, College Writing Center/Writers' Blockmitchejk@potsdam.edu View CV
I primarily teach writing courses, and I direct the College Writing Center. My PhD is from the University at Albany's program in Writing, Criticism, and Teaching, which includes composition theory, critical theory, creative writing, and literary studies. My dissertation argues for a renewed debate about conventional writing instruction among composition teacher-scholars. My scholarship focuses on that argument, on writing center pedagogy, and on writing interns' experiential learning. I am happy to talk with students, whether we know each other or not, about your goals, questions, and opportunities at Potsdam.
