About

Janine DeBaise teaches writing and literature classes. Because of her interest in digital rhetoric and the concept of lifelong learning, her writing classes include MOOC-like elements that take learning outside of the classroom. Her scholarly interests include digital pedagogy, the intersection of science and literature, and ecofeminism. Her creative work includes poetry, essays, and memoir.
