Meet Professor Edmiston










I am Professor of Drama in Education in the Department of Teaching and Learning at The Ohio State University.  My scholarship focuses on drama in literacy, language, and literature teaching, dramatic inquiry as a P-12 cross-curricular pedagogy, and drama as ethical education.   I regularly teach and conduct research in P-12 classrooms in central Ohio.  I have also conducted research, led workshops for teachers, and taught in classrooms in both England and Northern Ireland.  I have authored over forty publications including four books.

I have directed the professional development of teachers at Ohio State as part of the partnership between the Royal Shakespeare Company and the university.

In the Department of Teaching & Learning I teach courses in the M.A., Ed.S, and Ph.D. programs, oversee the teaching of undergraduate Teaching and Learning with Drama: Introduction course, and run the pre-service Multiage M.Ed. licensure program in drama education.  I am a core faculty member in these areas of study: Dramatic and Arts-based Teaching and Learning; Rethinking Early Childhood & Elementary Education; and Adolescent, Post-Secondary & Community Literacies. I am an affiliate faculty member in Multicultural Education & Equity Studies; Literature for Children & Young Adults; and Reading & Literacy in Early & Middle Childhood.
