- [6 semesters] TE 150: Reflections on Teaching and Learning I have been a Primary instructor for this TE 150 for 6 semesters. This course is an 100-level undergraduate introductory course to Educational Psychology. Pre-service teachers learn and reflect on the research behind human learning and development. I cover topics such as theories of learning, motivation, culture and global perspectives, and equity as they relate to teaching in K-12 classrooms. I have taught this course in two modes: in-person and online asynchronous.
- [1 semester] CEP 822: Approaches to Educational Research: This course is an 800 level asynchronous online Capstone course for in-service teachers who are in the Masters of Educational Technology (MAET) program. This course introduces teachers, counselors, and other practitioners to the basics of educational research. Students (in-service practitioners) are introduced to descriptive and inferential statistics, interview design, interpretive analyses of technological artifacts, and more.
- [2 semesters] CEP 820: Teaching Students Online This course discusses Design Thinking, Equity and Technology, Social Media, Media and Information Literacy, Coding and Computational Thinking, etc, in order to facilitate integration of technology in the future classrooms of in-service teachers. This course focuses on the students (in-service teachers) showcasing the projects and artifacts they make during the their entire program by creating digital portfolios. I have taught it in two modes: online asynchronous and hybrid (online/in-person).
- [1 semester] CEP 802: Developing Positive Attitudes Toward Learning This course focuses on promoting the development of motivation to learn. It is designed especially for educators, school psychologists, and other educational staff to learn new ways of conceptualizing and promoting motivation to learn among students. The overall goal of this course is to help practitioners develop a deeper understanding of motivation and its relation to learning behaviors in educational settings. Each student completes an original Design Project, a case-based project that involves designing an instructional plan that incorporates strategies that promote motivation to learn. I have taught this course as an online asynchronous class.
- [2 semesters] CEP 931: Introduction to Qualitative Methods in Educational Research This course is a Doctoral-level course for Doctoral-level students from all programs. This course provides an overview of qualitative methods and methodologies in educational research and other fields. Focusing primarily on interpretive, critical, and poststructuralist theoretical orientations to qualitative research, students read and discuss different approaches to qualitative research, examine qualitative research studies, and engage in qualitative research activities. As a final project, students complete a research proposal for a project using qualitative methods. I have taught this course in two modes: in person and hybrid (online/in-person).
