Teaching & Technology Faculty Advisor - Prof. Kevin Kennedy
Kevin Kennedy is a part-time faculty member with the English department, teaching first-year writing and literature courses. In his classroom, Kevin is always using technology to try and engage with students in new ways, from using online videos and podcasts to getting students to collaborate and give their opinions in real-time using online audience response systems. With a passion for seeing students use writing to create change in the world, Kevin’s focus in his writing courses is engagement and reiterating the power of effective writing and research. His research this year focuses on new types of assignments that take writing outside the class, using technology to impact life outside academia.
