Jill A. Morris earned her M.S. in Rhetoric and Technical Communication from Michigan Technological University and her Ph.D. in English from Wayne State University. She previously held the Director of College Writing position at Baker College of Allen Park and joined the Frostburg State faculty in the fall of 2011.

Dr. Morris is involved in national research and service projects dealing with gaming and writing. Most notably, she is teaching a course in conjunction with North Carolina State University, George Mason University, and Baker College in which some students create and others play an alternate reality game about a pandemic. She is also on the board of C's the Day, the annual conference game at the CCCC's where the grand prizes are publications. She is also an Assistant Editor for Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy where she works on the Praxis Wiki. She regularly presents papers at national conferences including the CCCC's, Feminisms and Rhetorics, and Computers and Writing--where she is part of a featured panel this year. She has past experience working in technical communication and webdesign, and uses those personal experiences in her teaching.

Outside of the University, Jill is a member of the Cumberland Chorale Society and past board member of the Southern Great Lakes Symphony Orchestra. She loves dogs and lives with her two Pomeranians--Delilah and Riddle. She loves dancing and community theater as well, and enjoys being involved in community arts projects.
