Sandra Jamieson is the Director of Writing Across the Curriculum at Drew University, overseeing the course-embedded undergraduate Writing Fellows Program that anchor’s Drew’s vertical writing program. She teaches in the Writing and Communication Studies emphasis of the English major, including writing for social media, authorship, genres of disciplinary writing, writing theory, pedagogy, and nonfiction. She also teaches study abroad courses, most recently “A Tale of Two Cities: Havana, Cuba & Little Havana, Miami,” leads international service trips with the Drew Honduras Project, and works with Drew’s Civic Scholars program.
Recent publications include Information Literacy: Research and Collaboration across Disciplines (co-edited with Barbara D’Angelo, Barry Maid, & Janice R. Walker); and Points of Departure: Rethinking Student Source Use and Writing Studies Research Methods (co-edited with Tricia Serviss).
She is a principal investigator in the Citation Project–a collaborative, multi-site, data-based study of college students’ use of sources in researched writing. She has also recently begun work as a co-researcher and US coordinator on a seven-year international research project exploring the ways college students select and use digital sources in written texts–in French and English (Partenariat universitaire sur la prévention du plagiat [PUPP]) funded by a Partnership Grant from the the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. More to come as we get to work!
