During my graduate career, I have benefited greatly from advice others freely gave, everything from how
to structure one's grad school experience to improve my college level teaching. Now that I am toward the end of my graduate school "adventure," I feel like I have a bit of wisdom that I can share with others, that may help them as others helped me.

Toward that end, I have been writing blog posts for IHS Academic
. IHS Academic is a blog affiliated with the Institute for Humane Studies, geared largely toward serving up advice to young scholars and graduate students. My posts incorporate knowledge I've gained in graduate school and UD's Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning, offering advice ranging from how to create academic eportfolios to tips for the job market.

Here are some of my recent posts:
