About

Dr. Pallo joined the department in 2007, where she regularly teaches Focused Inquiry courses and works to strengthen the role of general education across Virginia Commonwealth University. After her undergraduate studies, she spent several years as an Editor & Project Manager for a Seattle consulting firm before returning to academia to study 18th- and 19th-Century British Literature. Today, her research centers on the scholarship of teaching and learning, especially the way in which technology impacts these practices.
