Author Biography

Dr. Matthew Vetter is an assistant professor of English at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where he teaches in the Composition and Applied Linguistics PhD Program. A scholar in writing, rhetoric, and digital humanities, his research leverages technology and innovative pedagogy to create meaningful connections between academic and public communities. Vetter has published over a dozen articles and book chapters related to writing studies, information literacy, and Wikipedia-based education in premiere journals and academic presses. An early OER advocate, Dr. Vetter contributes to open-access projects as an associate editor at Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy and senior co-editor of Writing Spaces, a peer-reviewed, OER textbook project for college-level writing studies courses.
