Dawn Lattin

Senior Lecturer in English

Office: LA 207-B



MA, English (2001), Idaho State University

BA, English (1997), Idaho State University

I earned my B.A. and M.A. in English at Idaho State University. My M.A. thesis concerned the Renaissance play, The Revenger's Tragedy (ca. 1605), and its context in the development of Early Modern "anatomy theaters." At Idaho State University, I enjoy teaching Introduction to Literature and composition courses at all levels.

My additional training includes College Reading and Learning Association Composition Tutoring certificates and training in a variety of web applications. I was among the first of our lecturers to offer composition online. In 2016, I earned my Teaching Online Certificate through Quality Matters (QM), a nationally recognized professional development and peer review program designed to certify the quality of online and hybrid courses. In 2018, I also earned my Quality Matters peer reviewer certification and currently serve on QM peer review committees to review courses for other institutions. In 2019, I completed eISU’s Quality+ program, and after participating in an extensive QM peer review process, taught ISU’s first QM-certified online course, English 1102: Writing and Rhetoric II. In 2022, both my online Literature and Ideas (English 1175) and Professional and Technical Writing (English 3307) earned their QM certifications.
