After being accepted at each of the three PhD programs to which she applied, Kathryn Wozniak has decided to pursue her doctorate at DePaul in Computer Science.
Yes, you read correctly, a writing teacher getting a PhD in Computer Science.
Kathryn plans to study Human-Computer Interaction and Instructional Technology. She says, "My goal is to research the types of technology that enhance face-to-face and virtual writing situations in pedagogical and non-pedagogical environments. I am interested in joining scholars and researchers in understanding and creating tools that effectively accomplish face-to-face writing tasks in virtual settings."
