I'm a founding editor of ProfHacker, a group blog about technology, pedagogy, and productivity in higher education, currently hosted at The Chronicle of Higher Education. I'm also a contributor to Wired.com's GeekDad blog, and have been regular writer at Bookslut.
I am the director of educational technology at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. Previously, I was a professor of English at Central Connecticut State University, where I was also president of the faculty union for four years. My book, Lost Causes: Historical Consciousness in Victorian Literature, was published by Ohio State UP in 2006. (Such a pretty cover!)
Technological and economic forces are driving massive changes in higher education. I'm interested in helping the profession survive.
