Jayne Lammers directs the secondary English teacher preparation program. Prior to joining the Warner School in 2011, she taught graduate and undergraduate literacy education courses. She has also taught English/language arts/reading at the secondary (grades 6-12) and postsecondary (college composition) levels.
Lammers' research explores adolescents’ literacy learning, especially in online environments. She engaged in a two-year virtual ethnography to study young women’s digital media creations with The Sims video games. Her current project is a case study of adolescent writing in three contexts: school-based writing, fan fiction posted in an online community, and personal creative writing. 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 designing literacies that prepare them for 21st century futures.

Lammers is an active member of the Literacy Research Association, currently serving on the organization's Technology Committee. She also serves as the Secretary for the National Council of Teachers of English's Assembly for Research. Her other professional affiliations include the American Educational Research Association, National Council of Teachers of English, International Society of the Learning Sciences, and International Reading Association.
