Critical Digital Pedagogy

My pedagogy and overall values center around transparency, documenting and valuing process, subverting normalized cultural and social narratives, vulnerability, collaboration, justice, and cross-disciplinary conversations. In my classrooms and research, I merge digital humanities and #transformDH, writing studies, digital writing studies methodologies, fan and media studies, rhetorical genre studies, and critical digital pedagogy.

For the Digital Humanities Certificate at Northeastern, I have created an XML schema that is inspired by the process fan fiction writers take while they are reading, watching, and listening to the canonical texts that they love. The schema, called the remiXML, centers around transformative interventions in original texts and is currently in its first public version that I used in her First Year Writing Fall 2017 semester class. The schema for version 2 is designed to focus much more on transformative practices when reading original texts and was used during the Spring 2018 semester. Using teacher-research practices, I am in the stage of reflecting and bettering the use of the remiXML schema in my classroom to help to develop and transform reading practices.
