Part-Time Lecturer in English

Professor Carey teaches First-Year Writing in the Department of English, empowering students to develop their voices as writers. Believing firmly that students learn more from each other than they do from an instructor, she fosters a writing community in her classes. Her classes use a writing workshop approach and process-based pedagogy, drawing inspiration from expressivist rhetoricians such as Donald Murray and Peter Elbow and emphasizing self-reflection, as well as possibility and alternative for rhetorical choices within their compositions. She is certified in online higher education teaching, and builds online writing courses that encourage learner-to-learner interactions and utilize instructor presence. Her goal is for students to see and know themselves as writers, evolving and growing as part of a lifelong process of honing and sharpening this “human equipment.”
