I teach a variety of courses about rhetoric, argument, and persuasion. At UNLV, I designed, developed, and executed three original courses, COM 418: Rhetoric of Science, HON 410: Public Controversies, and COM 441: Environmental Justice. 

I also work closely with The Faculty Center and The Intersection at UNLV to lead workshops and trainings about creating inclusive and participatory classroom environments.

Antiracist and Inclusive Course Design

I have been involved in scholarship of teaching and workshops around building inclusive classroom environments and embodying antiracist content, assignments, and policies. Below is a link to a teaching resource and a video of a virtual workshop I lead on this topic for UNLV's The Intersection on 10/7/2020.
