Jennifer Grouling has been at Ball State since Fall 2011 and has served in multiple roles, including Director of the Writing Program. Her most recent book Adapting VALUEs: Tracing the Life of a Rubric through Institutional Ethnography examines the adaptation of the AAC&U VALUE rubric for Written Communication at two small universities. She has also published work on general education assessment, teacher response, and TA prep in journals such as The Journal of Writing Assessment, The Journal of Response to Writing, and Composition Forum. Jennifer also writes about games, particularly tabletop role-playing games. This work began with her 2010 book The Creation of Narrative in Tabletop Role-Playing Game and has recently been expanded in her co-edited collection Roleplaying in the Digital Age: Transmedia Storytelling, Tabletop RPGs and Fandom. She frequently teaches graduate courses in teacher preparation and writing pedagogy and a senior seminar on gaming and narrative. For more information about Jennifer, visit her website.
