“I am deeply invested in finding ways to facilitate critical skills building and media literacy in education. In my research, this has involved using digital games to foster new engagements with history in order to develop and sharpen key skills in historical scholarship and thinking. However, I believe this extends beyond any one discipline. In my view, the development of critical skills and literacies is essential for meaningful, proactive, and social justice orientated participation in the world outside of the institution. What I hope to bring to MET are opportunities for students to engage in inclusive, playful, and meaningful learning projects that expand their view of how education can work while grounding them in knowledges that are helpful for their development as learners and professionals.”
