Dr. A. Nicole Pfannenstiel is a digital rhetoric scholar who studies videogames and literacies, digital writing, blog communities, and the use of games (and play!) in the classroom. Her work focuses on learning through and with technology, blending connected learning theory, games theories, and digital rhetoric to support learning and writing.

Dr. Pfannenstiel teaches classes in Web Writing & Content Management, Media Literacy, Digital Rhetoric, Professional Writing, and Composition. She has previously taught courses in Digital Rhetoric, Ancient Rhetoric, Videogames and Literacies, Participatory Culture and Social Media, Multimedia Design, and Big Data at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and both online and face-to-face. She regularly employs multimedia learning, Twitter, blogs, multimedia projects, and experiential learning to help students experience, learn from, and reflect on learning with course content to feel more comfortable and gain more experience with design and writing.

Dr Pfannenstiel earned a PhD in Rhetoric, Composition and Linguistics from Arizona State University.
