Instructional Design Experience

My teaching experience has ranged from working with first-year college writers and supporting faculty and graduate instructors as an instructional technologist, to mentoring and training undergraduate writing tutors. In all these contexts, I seek to balance a compassionate and accessible approach to content with a critical and reflexive orientation toward practice. I approach instructional design as a self-reflective process centered on crafting learning experiences that are purposeful toward course outcomes and contextualized within disciplinary norms. In course materials, activities, and assignments, I foreground ways knowledge is created socially, and engage students in collaborative processes of experimentation, reflection, and revision.
