For Summer 2017 (May-June session), I’m teaching Freedom & Responsibility (PHIL 4484 – EP4), which is an intensive senior values seminar meeting 4x/week. The last time I taught this was over a regular semester, so the highly compressed format (12 hours of class a week!) will be sure to present new pedagogical puzzles.
In Fall 2017, I’ll be offering a graduate class in Contemporary Metaethics (PHIL 7240), along with two sections of Fordham’s sophomore core course, Philosophical Ethics (PHIL 3000 – EP3).
I have a Teaching Fundamentals Certificate from the Centre for Teaching Support and Innovation at the University of Toronto, which I earned through a series of workshops on topics including pedagogy, equity and diversity in the classroom, and engaging students through writing.
I’ve taught groups ranging from 9 students to 82 students, and assisted in a class with 300 students. Each of these sizes offers goods (and challenges!). I’m enjoying my current class size of 15-35 students: large enough for diversity of opinion, little enough for genuine discussion.
