Teaching

I have taught for ten years and been honoured with an excellence in teaching award.

I work in libraries/archives & the Department of English, so I enjoy introducing Special Collections & Archives as a humanities “lab” to my students. I believe that experiential learning in the library creates richer learning experiences and introduces students to life-long research skills. For example, in my James Joyce class, students will learn about the literary and material history of this work; and because I am committed to open, public knowledge, we will create an online resource for our community using the library’s digital exhibition software.

In all my courses, I try to combine digital scholarship, literature, and libraries in order to create meaningful, hands-on learning opportunities.

I teach a wide range of courses, from first-year writing courses to advanced, single-author seminars. My institutional exposure has allowed me to teach large lecture courses as well as smaller seminar-style classes. I also teach every summer at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, where I had the honour of teaching digital textual editing with Hans Walter Gabler.
