Jayne Lammers directs the secondary English teacher preparation program and is the associate director leading initiatives related to informal settings and building the capacity of graduate student researchers in the Center for Learning in the Digital Age (LiDA). Prior to joining the Warner School in 2011, she taught graduate and undergraduate literacy education courses. She formerly taught English/language arts/reading at the secondary (grades 6-12) and postsecondary (college composition) levels.
Lammers’s research explores adolescents’ interest-driven digital literacy practices, largely through qualitative case studies and virtual ethnographic methods. Recently awarded a Fulbright U.S. Scholar grant, she is 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. As a result of her research, Lammers aims to help shape literacy classrooms into spaces where online/offline and in-school/out-of-school boundaries get blurred and students are reading, writing, and designing in ways that prepare them for 21st century futures.

Lammers is an active member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), currently serving as treasurer for the Writing and Literacies SIG, and the Literacy Research Association, for which she chaired the Technology Committee (2015-18). Her other professional affiliations include the Association of Internet Researchers, National Council of Teachers of English (NCTEAR & ELATE), International Literacy Association, and its New York affiliate. She serves as an editorial board member for Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, Research in the Teaching of English, and The Reading Teacher.
