I seek to offer students tools that help them apply communication theory to better understand their everyday experiences. The three principles that guide my role as an educator include:
a) fostering engagement with the material and the world in which it will be applied
b) promoting critical thinking skills
c) respecting diversity and creating a safe and open environment for learning
At Purdue University, I have led large lectures, honors-level courses, night classes, and independently-developed stand-alone courses.
