During my first twenty years at UC, my research concentrated on modern Irish literature and led to the publication of two books: Shadowy Heroes: Irish Literature of the 1890s (Syracuse UP, 1980) and Dialogues in the Margin: A Study of the Dublin University Magazine (Catholic U of America P, 1999). My move into the position of Vice Provost for Faculty Development in 2001 created new pathways aligned with my administrative work. For the next ten years, then, my research focused on scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), with particular focus on instructional technology, ePortfolios, assessment of student learning, and teaching strategies for large-enrollment classes. In September 2011, I returned to a fulltime faculty position while continuing to conduct SoTL research, with a particular focus on undergraduate teaching and learning.
