Jonathan Alexander, McMicken College associate professor of English, will be honored with the Ellen Nold Award at the 19th annual Computers and Writing Conference May 22-25 at Purdue University. The annual award is presented for the best article in computers and composition studies that was published in Computers and Composition, an international journal for teachers and writing. Alexander’s article was titled “Digital Spins: The Pedagogy and Politics of Student-Centered E-Zines.” The article explored how the E-zine, an electronic forum, could be used as an educational tool to build student interest, development and discovery in student writing.

Alexander was also among the 75 people named in the May issue of Cincinnati Magazine’s “Creative Class,” residents age 35 and under who are having an impact on the city’s future. Alexander’s English composition service learning course was praised for building writing skills as well as building student awareness about AIDS.
