Teaching

My teaching philosophy is to stay up to date on industry trends and best practices, with the goal of integrating these into my teaching and preparing students for careers in today’s complex media industry. Some of the principles that guide my teaching are being cognizant of the different ways students learn, designing courses to be both engaging and relatable, pushing student to realize their potential without them being intimidated by the course material and expectations, and making myself available within reason for issues they might run into on the go. Utilizing this approach has allowed me to build strong relationships with my students. Helping them to exceed their self-expectations and grow into talented journalists has been one my most rewarding experiences in academia.
