My teaching interests encompass art and visual culture from the 1700s to the present. I am prepared to lead a wide range of courses in this field, ranging from general surveys to specialized graduate seminars, and to supervise appropriate research projects. I can also lead general courses in theory and methodology, architecture, cinema, and media. My experience and training has prepared me to lead innovative, experiential, and creative forms of learning and to effectively engage with cognitively and culturally diverse student bodies.
My Teaching Dossier details my experience, training, and methodology and includes my statement of teaching philosophy; teaching evaluations and feedback; teaching log; diversity statement; and sample syllabi, assignments, grading rubrics, and exam questions.
