Because she believes that knowledge should be shared and theory should be applied, teaching is a core interest of Dr. Flanigan's. Before coming to Rocky Mountain College, Dr. Flanigan taught communication and gender courses at a variety of educational institutions – from small colleges to large state universities. She has also been invited to give guest lectures and communication workshops for both large and small groups.

Dr. Flanigan has presented a number of conference papers at both the national and regional levels. Her work on online social support was published in the edited volume Cases on Online Discussion and Interaction: Experiences and Outcomes. Her current works derive from her dissertation and seek to explicate cultural discourses of gender and class. Future work will focus on cultural discourses surrounding environmental controversy.
