The course offerings, syllabi, and personal statement on teaching goals that comprise this page reflect the guiding principles that I discuss on my Teaching Philosophy page. Some of these courses have been offered only once (though soon to be twice in the coming academic year), so I have not yet had the opportunity to test the success of incorporating my reflections as an instructor and the student evaluation comments into my design of these courses. Other courses, however, I have been fortunate enough to be able to offer three or more times (under different titles/numbers), which has permitted me the chance to review and refine the strategies, activities, and learning assessment tools from these courses. For further discussion and summaries of teaching evaluations, student work, and curricular revisions, visit the Teaching Development, Student Work, and Innovative Pedagogy pages, respectively.
