SHORT BIOGRAPHYDr. Mulrooney's research interest is focused on the relationship between language theory and language use. In particular, how the cognitive linguistic framework enhances one's ability to analyze both spoken and sign language discourse. Her research has focused on the structure of personal narratives in ASL, the role of metaphor in ASL discourse structure and the comparison of ASL narrative structure and narrative structure of spoken languages. Another area of research is looking at the impact that the use of technology in the classroom (lecture capture systems, audience response systems 'clickers', online assessments) has on student learning.
