My pedagogical focus is on two areas: performative writing as a method of documentation and an interdisciplinary framework that draws on theories of information science and modern populist movements to read new modalities of performance in the contexts of immersive performance and the digital. I split my time as lecturer in Library & Information Science at City, University of London and module coordinator for Performative Writing/Vade Mecum at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance.

I am a librarian who is passionate about open knowledge and public humanities. Currently I’m a Librarian for Digital Academic Strategies at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. I previously worked as the Open Access Specialist at Boston University and received my M.S. in Library and Information Science from Simmons College. In my career as a librarian, I have advocated for open access to information, educated others about open access practices, and coordinated programming to promote the use of open educational resources. I am also active in a number of public humanities projects that promote community building, self-reflection, and social justice. I am a member of the SPARC Open Education Leadership Program 2018-19 cohort.

I’m an instructional technologist with a background in classical studies English literature, and library and information science. Some particular areas of interest are Latin poetry, Roman history, and sensational literature of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.   I am also interested in the digital humanities/liberal arts and how digital scholarly communication is changing not only how content is being shared but the nature of that content, itself. Lately, I have been working a great deal with virtual and augmented reality, 3D fabrication, games, and simulations.

MemberBrittni Ballard

(she/her) I’m a a critical, feminist teaching librarian who actively pursues open pedagogy as a student advocate. Game-based learning, specifically gamification and serious games, grounded in constructivism and self-determination theory guide my practice. I received her Master of Library and Information Science from University of Maryland (UMD), College Park and her Bachelor of Arts in Secondary English Education from Purdue University. My professional interests are intertwined with my oldest sibling identity, board and video games passion, and rural Midwesterner experiences. Specifically, I strive to promote curiosity by play, celebrate failures through design thinking, center students in participatory design, and foster inclusivity with cultural humility. Learn on, game long, and prosper!
