Ginny Dow

I am an Assistant Professor of English and teach both Literature and Writing full-time in the College of General Studies at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. I teach both residential and online classes. Prior to 2009, I worked as a Journalist and taught high school in Maine. I am currently finishing my dissertation for a Ph.D. in Literature and Criticism, focusing in transatlantic studies at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  

One of my favorite aspects of MindTap is the demonstrable benefit to my students. The hands-on practices both reinforce classroom teaching and enable my students to feel confident in their growing knowledge of the subject material. I especially enjoy using Connect Yard as a quick and efficient way to garner interest in the readings and to get information out to students.

Quality in Online Learning (OLC/Cengage) Badge
Issued by Online Learning Consortium
The earner of this badge has successfully completed the OLC 2-week training on Quality in Online Learning. This training program will help Cengage faculty consultants to better support, mentor, and provide virtual coaching to faculty at various institutions on effective practices of quality online learning, including course design, facilitation, and assessment.


"MindTap has helped me to provide out-of-classroom meaningful connections and hands-on practice to the material that I present in class. The Connect Yard component has added a spark of fun and increased the sense of community in my large lectures!"
