Curriculum Development and Service

I serve on the Undergraduate Studies Committee in my department at Queens College. We are currently redesigning our core majors of media studies and film studies.

In 2012 I served on the project team for an NSF funded curriculum development grant at the University of Illinois. The grant supported a project to create a group of digital media education foundations courses at Illinois’ College of Media. Separately, I was invited to present a workshop, “Engaging Students in Classroom Discussion,” at the Illinois Center for Teaching Excellence’s 2011 Graduate Academy for College Teaching.
