Melanie Gagich is an Associate College Lecturer in the First-Year Writing Program at CSU and she has taught composition courses for ten years. She is also currently a doctoral candidate in the Composition and Applied Linguistics Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Her research areas include multimodal composition, digital rhetoric, and open access resources (OERs). She studies how instructors can use these practices, approaches, and resources to foster student success and engagement in first-year composition courses.

Emilie Zickel is an Assistant College Lecturer in First-Year Writing at Cleveland State University. She has been using OERs in her courses for over five years, has created her own remixed version of a Composition textbook, and, with Melanie Gagich, led a team of First-Year Writing faculty at CSU to create A Guide to Rhetoric, Genre, and Success in First-Year Writing, the open access rhetoric textbook currently used in all FYW courses at CSU. Beyond her work with OERs, she is an advocate for game-based learning and hybrid-learning pedagogy in "Gateway" courses.
