He leads professional development for teachers in Guatemala, Mexico, Egypt, China, and throughout the United States. He worked in public schools for twenty years teaching English and social studies.

Dr. Wolsey has developed training materials for the California Department of Education, TextProject, and San Diego State University, and many others. Dr. Wolsey is the founder of an international literacy consulting firm. His research explores how language informs thinking about content and how the interactions of students in digital and face-to-face environments change their learning. He is also interested in the intersections of traditional literacies with digital literacies, focusing specifically on how those literacies affect teacher preparation and professional development.
