I teach highly interactive and interdisciplinary courses that engage students in critical, creative, and experiential exploration. My goal is to help students wrangle with course concepts in personally relevant ways and to apply their learning to understanding, questioning, and transforming their lives at personal, societal, and ecological scales.
EcoCultural Communication – Undergrad course in which we explore local and global humanature relations as both actively socially constructed and deeply materially experienced.
Culture, Borderlands, and Change: Places and Spaces - Grad fieldstudy course focused on spaces as material-symbolic constructions and issues of cooption, resistance, struggle, and transformation. For one student's photos of 2009 fieldstudy, go here.
Language, Thought, and Behavior - Undergrad course on ways communication reflects, constitutes, and transforms perception and practice. For examples of student group culture jam projects, go here ("How are you... REALLY?") and here ("Take a seat, make a friend").
Intercultural Communication - Undergrad course dedicated to heightening senstivity to, and understanding of, cultural difference, and to fruitful intercultural outcomes.
Introduction to Communication – Department's introductory course for Communication majors. 100-students, 12 undergraduate peer facilitators, and one graduate TA.
