AY 17-18: Fellow in the Peer Review of Teaching and Learning program in KSU's Teaching and Learning Center.
My Teaching Portfolio was recognized as an Exemplar.
2018 Eastern APA Innovative Methods in Philosophical Pedagogy Session: I presented "Behind the Veil: Teaching Rawls through Digital Gaming."
This is based in work I'm doing with my colleagues Amelia Hicks, Graham Leach-Krouse, and Scott Tanona developing an online game to be used in the classroom to teach issues related to distributive justice.
We're using this game as the basis for a grant proposal for an NEH Digital Humanities grant.
For some information on how I approach teaching, please see my Teaching Statement. For a summary of my teaching evaluations, click here.
Games in Development In addition to developing Behind the Veil with my colleagues, I continue to create my own game activities to provide thought-provoking experiences for my students. I welcome suggestions on how to improve them.
Here are two I've used successfully in my classes. Email for details.
Princes in the Tower (Echo Chambers)
Prisoners' Game (Segregation, Different Behavior, and Different Values)
Fall 2017 Teaching 100: Introduction to Philosophical Problems I'm experimenting with a new set of assignments and grading scheme. Comments are welcome! Update (1.16.18): My teaching evaluations scores in these classes were my highest scores yet. Several students (strongly) recommended sticking with the new grading system.
