At the University of Maine, I teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in journalism and mass communication, on topics ranging from journalism history to advertising and critical media studies.

During my time at Indiana University, I taught for four departments across campus. My dedication to undergraduate instruction was recognized with both departmental and university-wide teaching awards. I invite you to view my teaching philosophy and range of syllabi below:
