Jennifer Ahern-Dodson is Associate Director for the Duke Language, Arts and Media Program and the Director of Outreach for the Thompson Writing Program. She consults with faculty across the disciplines on ways to employ and assess writing in their own courses, and she advocates for faculty as writers and teachers. She teaches writing courses on student activism and digital storytelling and researches faculty learning communities by focusing on stories of writing: How we write, why we write, for whom we write, and what brings us joy in our work. Her current research centers on the relationship between our writing stories and our teaching stories.
