Research Narrative 2014-2020 (Span of 6th year comprehensive review)

*Please note that due to COVID-19 (March-August, 2020), two national research presentations were accepted for Summer, 2020 (Society for the Scientific Study of Reading conference and the Literacies for All conference) but the conferences were both cancelled. Additionally, a state-level presentation was accepted for Spring, 2020 (Texas Women in HIgher Education), but the conference was cancelled due to COVID-19.

My research areas focus on two primary areas of inquiry. First, I have a longstanding area of scholarship surrounding online literacy teacher education of both preservice and inservice literacy teacher education. As an integrated scholar, this line of research informs both my teaching and service. This area also encompasses the study of multimodal and digital learning. The second area of research is studying special populations in literacy such as students who face challenges in reading and bilingual learners.

Over the past six years, my publication record has been the following. I have been lead author (or sole author) on most of these publications:

Four published books:
A methodology book published by IGI Global (first author): The Community of Inquiry Framework in Contemporary Education: Emerging Research and Opportunities
Two co-edited edited volumes
Emerald Publishing (third author): Best Practices in Teaching Digital Literacies
IGI Global (second author): Educational Technology and Resources for Synchronous Learning in Higher Education
A widely used and disseminated open access book all focusing on educational technology and teacher education) published by the UTA Library Mavs Open Press: Creating Online Learning Experiences: A Brief Guide to Online Courses, from Small and Private to Massive and Open
Seven journal articles published in refereed national or international journals (Educational Media International, The ALAN Review, International Journal on Innovations in Online Education, Language Arts, and European Scientific Journal).
One state level refereed journal article (English in Texas)
Two textbook chapters (one for a widely used Pearson textbook on educational technology and one for a widely used 4-8 certification test preparation book).
Five book chapters in five separate edited volumes (AACE; Routledge; and IGI Global)
23 refereed international and national peer reviewed published conference proceedings.
One state level referred published conference proceeding (Texas Association for Literacy Education Yearbook)
Refereed presentations on research and scholarship at the international, national, state, and regional levels.

In progress: Additionally, I had a sole-authored research article accepted over the summer, 2020 to the national journal The Journal of Faculty Development (“Bridging Distance: Fostering Inclusive Digital Community and Student Voice in Real-Time Learning”), which was published September 30, 2020. I currently have a revise/resubmit to Reading Research Quarterly (RRQ), based on my research fellowship scholarship that I began as a fellow at Harvard. The revised version for RRQ with suggestions has been resubmitted to the journal.

Area 1: Innovations in Online Literacy Teacher Education. In this area, I have done original empirical studies on the impact of innovations such as synchronous learning, blogging, and other innovations in online literacy research. As an integrated scholar, drawing on the legacy and impact of Boyer’s notion of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL), my work informs the field and also my own teaching. My scholarship-informed teaching has been locally and internationally recognized. I have received funding twice from external sources over the course of the six year period.

Area 2: Special Populations in Literacy Learning (Dyslexia, Struggling Readers, Bilingual Learners, and Reading Debates). In this area I continue to work on three strands: 1) bilingual education 2) students who face challenges in reading including students with dyslexia and 3) historical and political debates surrounding how students learn to read which draws on my funded research at Harvard in the Jeanne Chall Collection. Currently, I have a revise and resubmit manuscript with the highly prestigious and highly impactful Reading Research Quarterly on my historical work in the Jeanne Chall collection at Harvard.

Emerging Area 3: COVID-19 and the role of Digital Learning and Health Literacy. I have had several fast turnaround publications and funded opportunities emerge as a result of the pressing urgency surrounding the many issues arising with the COVID-19 pandemic. With the pandemic’s end nowhere in sight at the moment As a result, this is a third and emerging area that intersects my already existing knowledge base and scholarly inquiries surrounding virtual learning with health literacy. I was recently (9/21/20) funded $20,000 as a Co-PI with two others on the topic of COVID-19 NAVIGATOR Youth Empowerment Pilot Program (EPIGRAM): A Health Literacy Collection and Curriculum for the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Looking Ahead: Connecting Present Scholarship to Future Goals

In the current moment, I hope to expand these three areas of scholarship by seeking out external funding building on the high-interest topics such as COVID-19 and digital resources for fostering health literacy. An additional area of interest is to design and implement an empirical study related to K-12 teachers’ use of print and digital texts (including digital communication tools and technologies) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, I would like to submit a book proposal to Routledge on the topic of research related to Microlearning and Microcontent. Microlearning is an underdeveloped topic within the area of digital teaching and learning and intersects with my interests and background with digital learning and online literacy teacher education.

Public intellectual and Media-Based Scholarship

My identity as a digitally-focused scholar and researcher is integrated with my work as a public intellectual. All of these publications focus on digital teaching and learning and digital literacies. This includes high-profile writing and publication in The Evolllution, blog posts for the UT System Academy of Distinguished Teacher Blog, blog posts for the National Council of Teachers of English (here and here) and Literacy Beat, and publications in the International Literacy Association non-journal media such as their Literacy Now blog and Literacy Today magazine. Additionally, I have done numerous media appearances on the topic of virtual learning in K-12 and higher education (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Fox 4 News DFW, KERA/NPR, etc.). I have also been extensively quoted numerous times in Inside Higher Education on the topic of online learning. Finally, my high-profile and globally viewed YouTube channel has over 2.5 million minutes watched, nearly 5,000 subscribers, and is used widely, making it a high profile source of information for other educators and scholars.

Summary of Teaching
2014-2020, Sixth year comprehensive review

*The COVID pandemic had little direct negative effect on my teaching as I had already been teaching online for over a decade and demonstrated leadership and innovation in this area. In this area, my background and leadership related to teaching has been helpful to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the Literacy Studies program, I have consistently taught the two courses that relate to elementary literacy (LIST 4373 and LIST 5373) and have had a chance to fine-tune these courses in primarily online offerings. Additionally, I provide course support and design support to LIST 5346 (Teaching the Writing Process). My greatest strengths are in developing and teaching online courses. Consistently, my teaching evaluations are in the middle of the 4.0-5.0 range with some in the higher end.

Teaching Awards

Additionally, I have earned international and local(UTA) recognition for innovations in teaching in the form of three teaching awards beyond the college level: 1) The Academy of Distinguished Teachers (2019, UTA), 2) 2019 President's Award for Transformative Online Education (2019, UTA), and 3) the International Literacy Association’s Jerry Johns Outstanding Teacher Educator in Reading Award (2017, ILA). For the ILA award, I was commended by Betsy Price, the mayor of Fort Worth.

A brief description of these prestigious teaching awards is as follows. The ILA award was the only external award.

International Literacy Association’s Jerry Johns Outstanding Teacher Educator in Reading Award

The International Literacy Association (ILA) Jerry Johns Outstanding Teacher Educator in Reading Award is a US$1,000 award honoring an outstanding college or university teacher of reading methods or reading-related courses.

The Academy of Distinguished Teachers (UT Arlington)

This award recognizes tenured faculty for a sustained record of outstanding teaching, personal commitment to students and the learning process, and the ability to motivate and inspire students.

President's Award for Transformative Online Education

This award recognizes an individual who is an outstanding instructor in the area of web-based distance education. This teacher has demonstrated excellence in distance education teaching, creating quality interaction with and showing exemplary responsiveness to UTA’s digital learners.

I have won two College of Education teaching awards under the period of the six year review (2016 and 2017).

Innovations

Innovations in teaching include extensive use of synchronous learning and teaching such as webinars, digital mentoring, use of podcasts, and videos. My videos include sharing of open educational resources (OER) and conversion of two graduate level courses to use all free open educational resources including extensive use of videos I designed. Videos on my YouTube channel have over 2.5 million minutes viewed. I bring experiences and broad vision teaching and/or designing instruction across a variety of digital platforms including: standard Learning Management Systems, MOOCs (e.g., co-teaching two MOOCs on edX), Moodle, and via multimedia channels such as video and audio formats. Additionally, I have collaborated globally with a colleague in Australia to study cross-cultural collaboration microblogging (funded by Academic Partnerships) resulting in publications. I also practice what Boyer deems as the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. I have studied my own innovative teaching practices and incorporated findings into quality improvement, presentations, and publications. Therefore, my teaching and scholarship are connected.

Ongoing Professional Development

I have done extensive professional development in teaching such as obtaining two rigorous teaching certificates in teaching online through the Online Learning Consortium through a scholarship program through the Center for Distance Education. I also was supported by the Center for Distance to become a Quality Matters peer reviewer. Additionally, I currently hold up-to-date Texas teaching certifications through 2025 in: Special education (EC-12); Bilingual/ESL (EC-12); Elementary Classroom Teacher and Reading Specialist (all level), which enhances my credibility as a teacher educator. I recently did 200 hours of CPE to renew my teaching certificates through TEA. Additional professional development has included attending numerous workshops at UT Arlington (LINK Lab and CRTLE) and through the Online Learning Consortium and Quality Matters professional development events and workshops.

Leadership in teaching includes multiple platforms where I have shared and showcased teaching ideas at UTA and beyond. I was invited to lead a Professional Learning Community at UT Arlington, sponsored by the Provost’s office (2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020 and co-facilitator for the current school year). The focus was on innovations with technology and is currently integrated with the Quality Enhancement Plan. Topics included: OER (open educational resources), synchronous learning, Learning Analytics, and Virtual Teamwork with the goal of fostering student engagement and success. I help faculty think critically and analyze key ideas through discussion, and application and evaluation of a technology-focused research-focused faculty project.

I am often sought to provide formal professional development workshops for other units across campus including nursing, business, and engineering. Recently with the quick pivot to remote and online teaching modalities, I have provided concrete formal and informal support for faculty in the College of Education with this move. AT UT Arlington, I have been a liaison between the college and broader university initiatives for multiple software tools related to teaching such as: Civitas (Inspire for Faculty), and additional software tools. I have been on the pilot and forefront of many online initiatives/software and have integrated these tools into my teaching. I am currently a MAFE fellow, have been a Service Learning Fellow, and am currently enrolled in the training program for ISTE Teacher Certification.

Efforts Taken to Improve Teaching Performance

Innovations from Internally and Externally Funded Grants:

Innovations I bring to teaching are largely centered in technology and hands-on, active learning that draw on both internal and external funding opportunities. I have sought grant funding from multiple sources to provide additional resources and technologies for the students.

Action-Research, Data-Driven Teaching, and Publishing on Outcomes

I have made the study of digital learning a focus in my research agenda. My primary interest in technology has been three-fold: 1) large class sizes have made in-class discussion difficult 2) new literacy practices must be modeled in class for the teacher candidate's future teaching and 3) online learning and distance education models are rapidly becoming a trend, even within the context of on-campus classes. I regularly pose inquiry questions that are centered toward examining the ways in which technology functions and the advantages, affordances, and challenges it brings with this use. Publications include peer-reviewed manuscripts, peer-reviewed conference proceedings, as well as book chapters. I use what I have learned to redesign each subsequent iteration of the class and syllabus. I want to make technology use meaningful and useful to students both in their current learning and for their future classrooms.

Successes in Teaching

Modeling of best practices: I model engaging research-based practices for them and expect them to discuss and analyze these practices, design effective lesson plans, and incorporate some type of application of practice, whether through service learning or peer work. The graduate courses I teach have focused on teaching content related to literacy learning at a more advanced level, but I also incorporate aspects of digital mentoring and individualized learning, as well as large-group webinars into graduate courses. All courses are fostered by a focus on multimodal learning including unique and content-specific videos and podcasts. These aspects of learning enhance the online course format and provide ways to differentiate learning for students who need review or desire additional learning opportunities within the course.

My teaching statement for the Regent’s award on the UT System website states:

As a teacher educator and literacy educator my primary mission is to equip my students who are current and future teachers--to thrive in their teaching situations and to become models and resourceful facilitators for their own students' learning in a highly digital age. My role as a literacy educator is to teach what is constant and important about the process of becoming literate while also leading students into engagement with new and emerging digital literacy practices. I model flexible thinking, enthusiasm for learning, and openness to change. Effective teaching requires resourcefulness and special attention to engaging students in meaningful ways.

Leadership Role with Teaching

In the 2015-2016 academic year, I was a Faculty Fellow for the Division of Faculty Affairs where I am focusing on creating multi-media to showcase exemplary practices in teaching. I was also selected to facilitate a Professional Learning Community with the LINK Lab at UTA for three years in a row now. In this role, I help other faculty foster best practices with teaching with technology. I have also done numerous invited presentations for faculty groups on campus on teaching-related topics, most recently with the Focus on Faculty series where I presented on online teaching and learning. Additionally, from 2014-2016, I led workshops focusing on online learning and digital pedagogies for the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and the College of Education at UTA. I also teach online courses for the CIRTL Network, an NSF funded project, affiliated with UTA and other universities.
