My main discipline of expertise is Communication. As a Communication-Studies generalist, I take great pride in my capability and experience vis-a-vis teaching a variety of communication classes.
I particularly enjoy teaching courses with substantive amounts of theory and research-methodology practice, including both quantitative (statistics) and qualitative research-methods courses. I have also enjoyed teaching English and Sociology, thanks to my interdisciplinary education and training-background (with a B.A. in English-Writing, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Communication, Culture, and Media, with a social-scientific emphasis).
Courses Of Particular Interest In The Future:
- Statistics for Communication and/or Social-Science
- General theory courses for communication & social-science
- Introduction to software-development and analytics for online communication
Please Note: I believe the emphasized [Italicized & Underlined] courses demonstrate the variety of my experience. If you’re interested, please get in touch with me for course-material samples.
