Service

At Ohio State I have served on committees at the university level, and in both the School of Teaching and Learning and the College of Education and Human Ecology; these include the Executive Committee of the University Teaching Academy, the College Promotion and Tenure Committee, the T&L Graduate Studies Committee, the Diversity and Equity Committee, and the College Finance Committee.  I am a former co-director of the Martha King Center for Language & Literacies.  I was twice elected chair of Education and Human Ecology College Council.

Nationally, from 2008-11 I was a member of the Standing Committee on Research, National Council of Teachers of English.  In 2010 I was the Ohio representative for the Education Leaders Institute of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Internationally, I am on the Editorial Board for the UK publication, The Journal for Drama in Education and from 2001-09 I was on the International Editorial Board of Research in Drama Education.

I have organized two international events at Ohio State: the 2000 International Drama in Education Research Institute, and the Dorothy Heathcote Seminar in 2007.
