Mary Pat O'Meara
I'm a Master of Education student at York University. My research focuses on Digital Literacy and Multimodal Authorship through videoplay (remixing, gaming, and all forms of digital narrative [re]production). With a degree in Film & Media Studies, a diploma in Post Production & Design, and a Bachelor of Education, and over 6 years of professional experience in the Television Industry as a Video Editor, I am a teacher with technological expertise when it comes to the digital arts. I use my technical skill to inform my pedagogical approach and my research, ultimately aiming to expand the traditional monomodal texts of academic production to include and value alternate and multiple modes of [digital] authorship.
