CIRI Blog Overview

iSchool faculty members have their own blog to share updates on their research projects, innovative ideas for advancing online teaching and learning, experiences with emerging technologies, thoughts on research methods, and whatever else is percolating in their minds. It’s a treasure trove of inspiration and knowledge.

New posts are published monthly. We encourage you to visit the blog often and share your comments.  

Most recently, Dr. Mary Ann Harlan, wrote a blog post about her research journey, traveling from one area to another. She talked about how her current research on representations of girlhood in YA is connected to previous research on teen content creators and reading fiction for information.  Read her post on CIRI Blog.

“Understanding the practices of how selection of story, integrating or rejecting the story, using contextual awareness when reading, and sharing to build understanding or varying views of a text can help us be more effective in positioning literature as window, mirror, or sliding glass door.” – Dr. Mary Ann Harlan
