Dr. Collier conducts research in the areas of multimodalities and literacies with a special interest in connections across home and school.
Using qualitative, visual, and ethnographic methodologies her work focuses on the processes of multimodal textmaking, how children use everyday resources (particularly, images), and what can be learned from children about their consumption and production of multimodal, cultural, and digital texts.
Her research interests also include ethical considerations of children’s participation in research, teaching for social justice, and the use of children’s literature in classrooms.
