I'm an experienced course design expert with a data-driven approach that prioritizes student-centered learning. My expertise in both digital and traditional learning allows me to create engaging and effective learning experiences. I have designed courses for the University of Oregon, Indiana University, and Southern New Hampshire University at the undergraduate and graduate level. My courses cover Comparative Literature, Literary Theory, English, Film and Television Studies, and Foreign Languages.
Southern New Hampshire University
In 2022 I designed a new undergraduate capstone course for Southern New Hampshire University on the Digital Humanities called "Literature in the Digital Age". Approximately 1,000 undergraduate students per year will take the course I designed.
In 2023 I designed a new graduate level Literary Theory course for Southern New Hampshire University which covers an introduction to a range of theories including deconstruction, gender studies, psychoanalysis, marxism, ecocriticism, and critical race theory. This course also covers core graduate skills such as developing an annotated bibliography, conducting scholarly research, and learning how to join a broader academic conversation. Approximately 600 graduate students per year will take the course I designed.
I have also assisted my Dean and SNHU's Instructional Design team in drafting revisions to other courses I have taught in our curriculum.
