Kelly L. Jones, Ph.D.
My name is Kelly Jones. I’m a geek, a writer, and a recovering academic. I hold a Ph.D. in curriculum & instruction and have been teaching adults for 12 years. My research focuses on lifelong learning and participatory culture, and I’m fascinated by the intersections of cognition, creativity, connections, and community. I wrote my dissertation about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and Chris Baty is my hero.
