Teaching

My approach to teaching comes from 20 years experience teaching in traditional and non-traditional settings. As an academic, I have taught large introductory classes, smaller seminar classes (at both the doctoral and undergraduate levels), and online courses. Past and current courses include comparative politics, environmental politics (global and domestic), sustainable development, democracy and dictatorship, Latin American politics and qualitative methods. Before joining academia I worked for a decade as a facilitator, corporate trainer, developer of educational materials, and lecturer on international affairs.
