ENG 100, ENG 300


Wren’s research interest is academic dishonesty, specifically the differences in cheating in traditional and online learning environments. Her dissertation, Academic Dishonesty in Online Learning, examined both face-to-face and online students’ attitudes toward and practices of cheating.


I came to WKU as a freshman in Fall 1992 and somehow never left. I began teaching at WKU as a graduate teaching assistant in Fall 1997, teaching ENG 055 for a few semesters before becoming a part-time instructor at Bowling Green Community College of WKU; I started working as part-time faculty on the Hill in 2002. From 2005-2009, I taught full time a Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC), part of KCTCS, before accepting a full-time position in faculty and graduate student development at WKU in 2010. In addition to teaching ENG 100 and 300, I have also taught ENG 200. I enjoy teaching online, but I make sure to return to the classroom from time to time, as well. In addition to teaching English courses at WKU, I currently work in Distance Learning, where I provide training and consultations for faculty who wish to better their skills with technology in the classroom and online teaching.
