Judith Jablonski collaborates with the School of Education’s faculty and instructional staff on the research, planning, creation, implementation, assessment, and support of innovative, technology-enhanced teaching and learning strategies.
Dr. Jablonski received her B.A. in English Literature from Marquette University and an M.A., also in English Literature, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). She also holds an M.S. in Library and Information Science from The Catholic University of America (CUA) and a Ph.D. in Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Prior to joining UWM, she served as the Graduate Studies Librarian and subject specialist in English, Communications, and Psychology at the American Public University System (APUS). She developed and taught courses in freshman composition, science fiction and fantasy literature to undergrads and information organization, database indexing, and professional and academic writing to master’s and doctoral students at UIUC, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Madison, CUA, APUS, and the University of Denver. Her areas of expertise are critical thinking and writing, research methods design and process, course/syllabus design, and information organization and vocabulary development.
Outside of her UWM position, Judith is currently working on three projects: a research study on the making of utopia in Austin Tappan Wright’s early 20th-century novel, Islandia; a mystery novel set in a fictional college in western Wisconsin; and a science fiction novel that explores the inaccurate history of a distant space settlement. She is also an artist and enthusiastic fan of baseball and ice hockey. She once aspired to be a paleontologist and still collects plastic dinosaurs.
