This looks like a vibrant community of online instructors. To give you some background on me, I joined the Program in Writing and Critical Inquiry in fall 2016 as the pre-law lecturer for students in the affiliated 3+3 law program between UAlbany and Albany Law School. I also teach a regular WCI section. Both sections are taught as part of general education requirements. I strive to foster students’ growth in careful and present listening, clear critical thinking, and purposeful writing. My goal is that my students develop into sound analytical thinkers, effective communicators in a variety of rhetorical contexts, and respectful participants in discussions that shape our personal and professional values.

My teaching and research interests are broad and often intersect at the cross-section of psychoanalysis, literature, and law. I currently specialize in teaching legal analysis, rhetoric, and ethics, as well as principles of writing and critical inquiry. I have also taught courses in medical humanities, communications, Gothic literature, and psychoanalytic / socio-cultural studies of trauma and illness in literature, law, and politics (just to name some courses). 

I currently teach on campus during the fall and spring semesters. However, I am fortunate to be able to teach an online section during the summer. I am particularly interested in how course design impacts student learning and engagement. Every semester, the way I build my courses - whether they're on campus with an online presence or 100% online - evolves based on the feedback I receive from my students.

I am a recipient of the internationally-recognized Blackboard Catalyst Award for building an exemplary blended course. More recently, I was nominated for a Torch Faculty/Student Engagement Award nominee for outstanding faculty/student academic engagement. This award was nominated by a student in an online course.

If you keep up with campus news, you'll see my name mentioned every now and then. I am UAlbany Mock Trial's faculty advisor and coach. Mock Trial recently hosted a collaborative mock trial invitational, the first of its kind in the history of UAlbany. It was a huge success, and we hope to host more mock trial invitationals.
