I’m Angela Laflen, a faculty member in the English department at California State University, Sacramento. My teaching and research concern writing, rhetoric, and technology. More specifically, I am drawn to questions concerning response practices, online pedagogies, and digital and multimodal literacies.

Future Projects, Courses, and Presentations

During Spring 2022, I have a research leave, and I am serving as Teaching Associate Coordinator for the Writing Program.

In my research, I am beginning a new study to look at how instructors choose among response programs and technologies to provide efeedback on student writing and the impact of those choices on teacher commentary and student revisions.
