Teaching

My interest in teaching and pedagogy is an important part of my scholarly identity. My teaching experience has ranged from large intro-level courses to small seminars. As a teaching fellow, I have received the Bok Center for Teaching and Learning's Distinction in Teaching Award for multiple courses.

I recently enjoyed designing and teaching a sophomore tutorial seminar, "Religion and Democracy: The American Case" (2020 and 2021). Furthermore, I served as Course Director for the sophomore tutorial course in 2021, adapting research skills lesson plans for a range of seminars to the remote learning context.

I have also served as a Bok Pedagogy Fellow, investing in extensive teaching training. In this role, I worked with peer TFs to improve their teaching through in-person and video observations. As a capstone for this program, I developed a one-page tip sheet for Harvard TFs, "Ideological Conflict in the Classroom."
