Teaching

College Courses Taught at Indiana University

As an associate instructor the department of Counseling and Educational Psychology, I assisted in the development of a core curriculum to provide consistency across sections of these courses. In the fall 2014 and spring 2015 semesters, I collaborated with a research team from IU’s Center for Research on Learning and Technology to integrate video case studies into my courses’ curriculum in efforts to better support students’ creation of theory to practice connections.
