Chris has taught a variety of writing courses at UMSL, including Freshman Composition, Advanced Expository Writing (including courses focusing professional literacies and digital rhetoric), Writing in the Sciences, and Technical Writing. About his courses, Chris says, “I believe students need both theoretical approaches to writing and practice when developing skill. Finding a perfect balance between those two is what makes for an effective writer.” Chris is also the coordinator for UMSL’s Writing Center, where he works closely with writing consultants and students at developing a community and culture of writing on campus. His research interests include digital communication, critical discourse analysis, teaching and learning online, and integrating virtual reality and gaming into composition education.
