Writing and Research
Adam Phillips specializes in writing research methods, digital rhetoric, multimodality and writing program administration. He is especially interested in the intersections of writing and technology and how to more effectively foster digital communication within writing courses.
Currently Phillips is working to complete his dissertation at the University of South Florida. His research focuses on first-year writing courses and understanding how students circulate and recirculate knowledge across genres and discourse communities. Using assemblage theory, developed by Deleuze and Guattari and further expanded by DeLanda, his dissertation attempts to understand how to identify student knowledge circulation using data analytic software and trace how it recirculates in different genres, such as reflections, reports and narratives.
He has also participated in research about faculty reappointment, promotion and tenure (RPT), online writing instruction (OWI) and student self-efficacy. Currently, he is research deploying utility-value intervention (UVI) as a method for programmatic assessment.
