In my teaching, I focus on cultivating learning environments that emphasize intellectual curiosity and sharing projects-in-progress. I have taught a range of writing courses and education seminars, including courses on student activism, civic engagement and community-campus partnerships, self-authorship in college, and women’s leadership narratives. 

Faculty Development

My teaching also includes faculty development, particularly in my work as Director of Outreach for the Thompson Writing Program and Associate Director for the Duke Language, Arts and Media Program.  I have been involved in interdisciplinary initiatives focused on public scholarship, including Scholarship with a Civic Mission: Research Service Learning, consult with faculty and departments on engaged pedagogies such as community-based research, lead multidisciplinary faculty learning communities that explore pedagogical innovations in writing and undergraduate research, and offer pedagogical workshops across the curriculum on topics such as “Developing Community Partnerships,” “Teaching with Portfolios,” “Writing and Critical Reflection,” “Teaching Research with Writing,” “Responding to Student Writing,” and “Designing Collaborative Research Assignments.”
