Throughout my experience teaching as both a graduate student and professor, I have taught a range of courses in media production, film studies, popular culture, technology studies, communication studies, and gender and women’s studies. In the Spring of 2020, I was excited to be given the chance to design a media and culture course around my research at the intersection of comedy studies, popular culture, and media ecology. .
I have always sought to strengthen my teaching, and as a graduate student 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 was awarded my department’s inaugural Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching award, and in the Spring of 2020 was included on West Chester University Honor’s College’s List of Outstanding Faculty. Since joining the faculty at WCU, I have also been actively involved in the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, the APSCUF Social Justice Committee, and recently presented at the RECAP Conference on virtual classroom discussion.
