Demonstration of Teaching Effectiveness

I have been teaching within the department of Media and Cinema Studies since the fall of 2012. After my first year as a grader and teaching assistant for MACS 100, I have served as the instructor of record for ten semesters, including for one summer course.

I’m constantly working to improve my teaching, and thus have also earned the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning’s Graduate Teacher Certificate and the Graduate College’s Mentorship Certificate.  In the fall of 2017, I also earned the my department’s inaugural Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching award.

Included in this portfolio are: 1) overviews of and resources from courses I’ve taught, 2) details of my teaching assistant experience, 3) additional production instruction, 4) an overview of courses for which I’m qualified to teach, and 5) a proposed syllabus based on my dissertation research.

Finally, below please find an overview of my teaching evaluation scores.
