Joel Schneier, Ph.D.

Biography

My name is Dr. Joel Schneier, and I am a Lecturer and Composition Coordinator (GTA Lead) in the Department of Writing & Rhetoric (DWR) at the University of Central Florida. I earned a Ph.D. from the Communication, Rhetoric, & Digital Media program at North Carolina State University.

My research investigates questions at the intersection of mobile communication, writing, and sociolinguistics, with a focus on process-based and computational methods for qualitatively studying how individuals meaningfully communicate with others through mobile technology. My recent research has included keystroke-logging analysis on mobile devices to study writing processes during text messaging, a microethology of collaborative gameplay in mobile Minecraft, a usability study of BigDIVA.org, and longitudinal study of non-native English speakers' writing experiences in undergrad. My research has been published in Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence, New Media & SocietyMobile Media & Communication, and Digital Humanities Quarterly.

My teaching experience has included classes in First-Year Composition, Writing Studies, Professional Writing, Linguistics, and Science Technology & Society.
