Todd Taylor

Todd Taylor is the Director of the Writing Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. A leader in bringing digital composing into the college classroom, Taylor's research investigates how concepts of literacy are changing in response to advanced communication technologies. He has written or edited numerous works, including Literacy Theory in the Age of the Internet (with Irene Ward) and the award-winning multimedia performance piece, "The End of Composition." Taylor is the recipient of both the Friday Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching and the Chapman Award for Excellence in Teaching. In 2009, he created Take 20, a film for writing teachers by writing teachers and published by Bedford/St. Martin's. Inspired by that project, he travelled across the country to interview 100 students about their experiences with college writing. That research serves as the foundation for his new text, Becoming a College Writer: A Multimedia Guide.
