Short biography: 

Cheryl Ball is an associate professor in the Department of English at Illinois State University where she teaches classes in multimodal composition, digital media, composition theory, and digital publishing. She is also editor of Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy.

Her teaching, research, and service focuses on multimodal composition practices in English studies. She teaches and studies how writers—whether they are students or scholars in the field—compose multimodal texts, which combine linguistic, visual, audio, spatial, and/or gestural modes of communication. Her aim is to help authors choose the most appropriate genre(s), technologies, media, and modes they need in a particular writing situation. The result of this pedagogical and scholarly work is a body of research built on student-produced and peer-reviewed multimodal scholarship.
