Sample Syllabi | Teaching Experience

I have had the privilege of working with students in a variety of learning communities: at the University of Toronto (as a Grader in the Philosophy Department), at Yale (as a Teaching Fellow in the Philosophy Department), and at Western Oregon University (as a Writing Consultant at the Writing Center and as a Philosophy Tutor at the Academic Advising and Learning Center).

I recently taught Introduction to the Philosophy of Education (as sole instructor) during Yale’s Summer Session. You can access the course syllabus  here.
