TEACHING

Research-driven teacher training

From 2020 and 2021, I completed the Teaching and Learning Foundations Certificate of Completion through the MacPherson Institute at McMaster University. This program was comprised of a graduate course on “key foundational themes in teaching and learning in higher education” (EDUCATN 600) and an Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW).

In July 2022, I completed the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) Seminar on Teaching and Learning in Philosophy. This was an incredible experience and I recommend it to anyone interested in developing as a philosophy teacher. Applications are accepted from current graduate students and new faculty whose PhD was conferred within two years of the seminar. The seminar runs biannually.

Beginning August 2022 I will spend 13 months pursuing the Certificate Program in Advanced Teaching and Learning through the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology at UBC.
