American Politics Online: POLSCI1100

Taught an online course in American Politics for over 200 students over two semesters. This included setting up course content, course structure, timing, and responding to technical issues. This was in accordance with Soomo Learning and Ohio State's Canvas system. 


Voters and Elections

Worked as a teaching assistant for over seventy students in American political behavior and elections. Students learned about contemporary debates in American political science. Worked with technologies such as Top Hat and Carmen systems:

American Political Thought

Co-taught a political theory course at Western Illinois University using the "Reacting to the Past" (RTTP) teaching pedagogy. RTTP is a class simulation in which students role-play as characters from a historically interesting time and work with like-thinkers to solve issues within their groups. 

My experience included being the owner of a hypothetical restaurant in Greenwich Village, 1913. Students became passionate about reconciling Marxist and feminist philosophies heavily debated during the time.
