Jayne Lammers formerly oversaw the secondary English teacher preparation program and served as an associate director at the Center for Learning in the Digital Age (LiDA). Before joining the Warner School in 2011, she taught courses in graduate and undergraduate literacy education, along with English/language arts/reading at both secondary (grades 6-12) and postsecondary levels (college composition). As she transitions away from her faculty position at Warner, she will no longer be available for new student advising.

Lammers’s research explores adolescents’ interest-driven digital literacy practices, largely through qualitative case studies and virtual ethnographic methods. Her work recently took a global turn when, through a Fulbright U.S. Scholar grant (2019-20), she began collaborating with alumna Puji Astuti ‘16W (PhD) to study the digital literacies of secondary students in Semarang, Indonesia. Her previous research projects include a two-year affinity space ethnography to study young women’s digital media creations with The Sims video games, a longitudinal case study of an adolescent’s writing across time and contexts, and several collaborative projects that explore connections between fanfiction practices and school-based literacy instruction. Always looking to inform classroom practice, Lammers’s research aims to help shape literacy classrooms into spaces where students are reading, writing, and designing in ways that empower, humanize, and connect.
