Benita Blessing – Instructor, School of Language, Culture, and Society. My research and teaching (in-person, online, and now remote!) reflect my interdisciplinary training: history, gender and generational studies, language/literature/culture, media, and education. I am particularly interested in creating interactive assignments for synchronous and asynchronous coursework, and designing Canvas sites that students and instructors can navigate easily.

I teach online courses in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, in Literature and Writing. My approach draws on asynchronous classroom models inspired by studies in Free Choice Learning. My pedagogy emphasizes inclusive, equitable, and student-directed learning.
