Teaching

Classes I Teach

At the undergraduate level, I have designed and taught one of the Department of Communication’s new large lecture courses, COMM 3115: Communicating Science, Health, and Environment. This course introduces students to the important role that communication plays in public perceptions of highly technical topics, and it surveys on-going lines of research in these areas.  COMM 3115 serves as a valuable prerequisite for other, more specialized classes that I teach on strategic health communication, health and public policy rhetoric, and argumentation.  I also teach an undergraduate course on feminist communication.

In addition, I teach a range of graduate seminars focusing on qualitative, rhetorical, and mixed research methods, as well as on rhetorical theory, history, science communication, and public health.
