Teaching Overview

Below is a description of some of my previous teaching experience at the University level. 



In higher education I have independently designed and taught courses at Rutgers University. These include an online section of Introduction to American Government (01:790:104) in the Department of Political Science and an upper-level seminar in Women and American Politics (01:790:355) cross-listed in the Departments of Political Science and Women's & Gender Studies. For descriptions of both courses and syllabi please see the "Course Descriptions and Syllabi" section of this website under the  "Teaching" tab. 

As part of my position as a Program Coordinator for the First-Year Interest Group Seminars (FIGS) Program at Rutgers University, I taught a course called "Peer Instructor Education: Learning to Teach, Teaching to Learn" (01:090:320) from 2014-2016. This course is intended to help new Peer Instructors learn the skills to design and teach their own college-level course. I worked with a small team of four instructors, including the Director and Assistant Director of the program, to adapt the course each year. We conducted pedagogical research, designed the syllabus and weekly lesson plans, and created the materials for evaluation and assessment of our students. 

From 2013-2017, I served as a Teaching Assistant at Rutgers University. From 2013-2015 I was a Teaching Assistant for Prof. Ross Baker's Introduction to American Government (01:790:104) course. In this position I assisted Prof. Baker in the course design, scheduling, evaluations, and grading. I also was responsible for independently recitation sessions to four class sessions of 15-25 students each semester, including the R1 Remedial Section of the course annually. I have also previously served as a Teaching Assistant for Prof. Yvonne Wollenberg's section of Introduction to Law and Politics (01:790:106) in the Spring 2017 semester. This section of the course was part of a new initiative at Rutgers University called Immersive Synchronous Lecture Hall courses*. I served as a Classroom Technology Teaching Fellow for the office of Digital Classroom Services through this position and received training on classroom technology that assisted me in teaching my own recitation sections and assisting Prof. Wollenberg with the course format. Most recently, I served as a Teaching Assistant for Prof. Colin von Liebtag's Career Management course in the Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations in the Fall 2017 semester.
