Past Courses Taught
Public Speaking: As a graduate teaching assistant at both KU and KSU I got to teach public speaking fairly regularly.
Small Group Communication: At KU I enjoyed teaching small group communication. I go to partner my classes with the Willow Domestic Violence Center for service learning opportunities.
Argumentation and Debate: Because I was a debate coach, I also had the chance to teach the argumentation course at KU.
Communication on the Internet: For several semesters I taught this course at KU and I also developed an online version for the department.
Research Assistant for Family Communication: I was awarded funding to be a graduate research assistant. I was teaching students enrolled in the course the importance of research skills and helping them present about their work.
Research Assistant for Methods (Psychology): Following my work with family communication, I was also asked to assist the psychology department for their methods courses. As a result, I developed online materials dispersed through Blackboard for 7 sections of the course.
Courses In Development
Interpersonal Communication: COMM 322 is our introductory interpersonal course. I am currently developing a large hybrid course with graduate assistants for Spring 2018.
Senior Honors Thesis: I am teaching this course in the Spring 2018. This is our capstone course. Students pitch and complete a research project and present it at the end of the semester in a poster session.
