Areas of Expertise
I have expertise in incorporating real research projects into courses, in flipping classrooms, in using the 'teaching replication' model of classrooms, game-based learning, and in team-based learning. I also have experience in cultivating innovative pedagogy practices within my own classroom and with institutions. I have worked to decolonize my syllabi, and to incorporate disruptive pedagogical practices into my classroom.
