As a member of the IU Southeast English Department since 1996, Dr. Daly teaches any number of courses in literature, writing, and education. His literary specialty is ancient and modern heroic parody, an area in which he has published widely. His current research, pedagogical in nature, examines how best to teach oral literature through an interdisciplinary, anthropological approach. Prior to his arrival on campus, Dr. Daly taught high school teacher English and Latin in New York City and in Illinois. Since then he has also taught an array of college-level education courses in such areas as classroom assessment, learning theory, educational psychology, adolescent literature, and curriculum design. In addition to the numerous pedagogical workshops he has offered to elementary and secondary teachers, he has been an active member of the IU Southeast assessment program. He authored the IU Southeast Assessment Handbook, a campus-wide resource tool for program assessment.
