I have enjoyed teaching or assisting teaching a number of courses across a range of subjects. My teaching philosophy includes using the science of learning to promote the tradition of critical inquiry of a liberal education with a rigorous engagement with a course’s substantive material. I have sought out and adopted a number of assignments to enhance my teaching. For instance, a journal assignment allows students to try out new ideas, grapple with difficult passages, raise questions, and develop a habit of focused writing.

Evidence Based Teaching and Learning

For those interested in learning more about the science of education and learning, I recommend Brown, McDaniel, and Roediger’s Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning. If you only have 20 minutes, I recommend this.

Citation Software 

I recommend making the initial small investment of time to set up a (free) citation software program such as Zotero (which I use) or Menedely. It will save you time and prevent frustration.
