Brittni Ballard (she / hers)

Towson University
Learning Technologies Librarian Research & Instruction
Towson, Maryland, USA

I'm a Maryland-based academic librarian with a background in K12 education, office administration, video game development, technology support, and college student supervision. My service and scholarship focus on user experience, critical digital pedagogy, disability advocacy, and web accessibility. All research interests are grounded in lived experience teaching, learning, connecting, and collaborating, often remotely, as a first generation disabled graduate student and library worker. Specifically:

I explore how to thrive in higher education by researching with and for disabled students, scholars, and workers. I am fascinated by values, behaviors, and points of conflict between them. I pursue a world of inclusion, not accommodation. I dream of access that is mutual, of and for the collective—not individually instigated. In that vein, I practice crip time, rest as resistance, imagination, emergent strategy, pleasure activism, active listening, body trust, and genuine accountability (self reflection, apology, repair, changed behavior). My scholarship deals in lived experiences of chronic illness and disability, with arguments strengthened by stories of past and present ableism and hope sustained by stories of present and future joy.
