Teaching and facilitating learning can happen in a variety of ways whether it is in a one-on-one advising session, workshop, or traditional classroom setting. Facilitating integrative learning experiences is the center of my passion for working with students and I take pride in designing curriculum, assignments, and activities that lend themselves to intentionally meeting students where they are, are critically reflective, and allow for a greater awareness of self and others.
I have taught the following courses during my tenure in higher education:
UNIV 102: Being Agents of Social Change, 1 credit, Fall 2016
UNIV 101: First-Year Seminar, Loyola University Chicago, 1 credit, Fall 2015- Fall 2016
Teach 8 1-credit sections of course each fall
UNIV 112: Strategies for Learning, Loyola University Chicago, 1 credit, Spring 2016
UK 101: First-Year Seminar, University of Kentucky, 1 credit, 2013-2015
University 101: The Student and the University, University of South Carolina, 3 credits, Fall 2012
University 101: First-Year Seminar, Saint Louis University, 1 credit, Fall 2010
Experiences teaching University 101: First-Year Seminar at a variety of universities has enabled me to be proficient in facilitating collaborative learning, engaging pedagogies, and active learning strategies to create a learner-centered environment for differentiated student populations. The focus of these courses is to instill a sense of belonging and connectedness to the university. Having taught eight 1-credit sections of UNIV 101 in fall 2015 and 2016 at Loyola University Chicago has provided depth to my understanding of facilitating learning and the student experience.
