LOUGHEED ADJUNCT PROFESSOR / LEADERSHIP

2018-current
University of Alberta

Design and deliver INT D 301 Foundations of Leadership, an interdisciplinary undergraduate course with a strong focus on personal and cohort leadership development. I privilege experiential learning in both classroom activities and assignments. For example, students apply their learning about communication through an analysis of a Mayor's communication gaffe, then create communication plans to rectify it and pitch them to the Mayor's Chief of Staff. For their group project, students have produced vodcasts which encourage viewers to take action on topics from food accessibility to sexual assault to mental wellness on campus. They also have social media based assignments which challenge them to practice public pedagogy.
