Kristin Winet

Associate Professor of Practice

Kristin is an Associate Professor of Practice in the University Center for Assessment, Teaching, and Technology (UCATT) and the Program Administrator for UArizona’s Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL). She develops professional development in teaching programs for graduate students and postdocs and facilitates courses, workshops, and learning communities in writing pedagogy, teaching-as-research, and inclusive teaching.

Kristin comes to UCATT from the Writing Program, where she served as the co-interim assistant director and taught courses in writing and rhetoric. Before returning to UArizona, she taught at a small liberal arts college where she also coordinated writing-across-the-curriculum workshops and directed the first-year writing program. She earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing and her Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English from the University of Arizona in 2016, focusing on ways to promote diversity and inclusion in the travel writing industry.

Kristin is also an award-winning writer whose work has taken her all over the world. Some of her favorite assignments include investigating a Soviet arcade in Russia and profiling an elephant mahout in Thailand. These days, you can find her a little closer to home, exploring the Sonoran Desert with her two little ones and squeezing in time with a book or yoga mat whenever she can.
