Teaching Statement (2012-2017)

In the following statement, I will show how I meet the criteria for Excellence in Teaching by grouping my activities and accomplishments into the following four categories cited in the IU Kokomo School of Humanities and Social Sciences Promotion and Tenure Criteria:
(1) course development and effective teaching in diverse areas; (2) my individual mentorship of students at all levels, including undergraduate and graduate research; (3) initiatives in student learning and engagement—both solo and collaborative—on my own campus, statewide, and within the entire IU system; and (4) participation in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

What follows is a summary of my teaching accomplishments.
