Hello and welcome! My name is Matt and I am an English Studies PhD candidate at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. My research interests include rhetorics of games (both analog and digital) and play, technical communication, game design, dynamics of teamwork and team building, and usability studies. My dissertation is about designing and building a board game to teach technical communication students principles of scrum-style agile project management. If you have questions about my research or teaching, I can be reached at mbeale@odu.edu.
