An award-winning teacher, for over thirty years Lisa Hammond has worked with students at all levels as a professor and as a community volunteer. Whether she is working with college students, kindergartners, or adult learners, her teaching is always grounded in helping students learn to attend to their worlds and their words carefully, to express their ideas clearly and with elegance.
In the formal classroom, Dr. Hammond has taught a wide range of courses for USC Lancaster and the University of South Carolina’s Palmetto College, in addition to her earlier teaching at the University of Alabama and Michigan State University. She was an early adopter of online instruction, teaching her first courses with technology at Alabama at the beginning of her teaching career. She taught the first online course for what was then Palmetto Programs in 2000, Women’s Studies 111: Women in Culture, and later published two articles about gender and access to technology from that class.
She is available for writing workshops in poetry and creative non-fiction on request.
