As an Assistant Professor at Temple University in the Department of Media Studies and Production, I teach a range of courses including both traditional and emerging media production.
My philosophy of teaching centers around hands-on, theoretically informed, production-based learning that involves creativity, experimentation and risk-taking. In the classroom, I see myself as a both a guide and a “fellow traveler,” learning and making along with my students.
My classes Advanced Editing and Producing and Directing/Graduate TV Production focus on traditional strategies, whereas Emergent Media Production experiments with new creative technologies. I developed a section of Genres of Media Production in which student create interactive videos. Here is a video about the interactive media course:
