Educator

Over the past decade or so, I’ve been fortunate to teach a wide variety of courses to a diverse array of students. These include a number of established courses as well as a multitude of original course designs (undergraduate and graduate alike). Moreover, my work as an educator has included more than a few engagements with experimental pedagogy (resulting in a couple publications on the matter) as well as serving as the project lead (and later Director) of the online first year composition course at Indiana University. To this end, I am a firm believer in bringing the practices and principles of digital media to bear on course design, pedagogy, and student learning.

This section of the website (perpetually in process) is meant to provide information (and access) to some of these curricular creations. Below are links to 3 course websites. The first is for the last iteration of my experimental games course design, which not only has students write about and play video games, but is itself designed as a game. The second is from my Professional Writing Skills course a few years back, which is a mix of business writing, technical writing, and rhetoric for professional environments. The last is from my Rhetoric and Sports class, and is currently built around vlogging and podcasting as a primary mode of course engagement.

Rhetoric, Play, & Games
Professional Writing Skills
