Visiting Affiliate Assistant Professor of Writing
Dominic Micer has been teaching students to write since 1990. Along the way he earned an M. A. in English from the University of Vermont and a Ph. D. in English with a specialization in Rhetoric and Composition from Miami University in Ohio. Since earning his Ph. D., he has held teaching positions at Miami University, University of Southern Indiana, and Purdue University North Central teaching primarily First-year Composition, Advanced Composition, Introduction to Literature, and Technical and Professional Writing. This experience has taught him:
- Writing students learn best when they are having fun
- Writing students learn best when challenged to do something against their expectations
- Writing students learn grammar best by writing
- The value of bullet points and counter-point to break up monotonous parallel structure
Recently, Dr. Micer returned home to the Washington, D. C. metropolitan area after living in the Midwest for 18 years. While gainfully employed as a Visiting Affiliate Assistant Professor in the Loyola University Writing Department in Baltimore, he relishes the challenge and opportunity of teaching grown-up writing to smart young people in imaginative ways.
