Courses that I teach

teaching outsideI see my primary goal in the undergraduate classroom as emphasizing an additional perspective for understanding and explaining the human experience through human communication. In every class, I emphasize what the communication studies perspective brings to our lived experience through discussions of current events, controversies, and popular culture. I want students to view the classroom as a place where they can open their ears, eyes, and minds to consider other perspectives and to become critical thinkers. I ask students to critically engage with discipline-specific problems through writing, speaking, and experiential activities and to take those learning experiences seriously. Ultimately, I want students to desire to bring their understanding of communication to their world—through personal conversations and relationships, service to their communities, work experiences, and so forth.
