SIFA 2018

My commitment to teaching is absolutely at the core of who I am as an academic. Here is my take on creating a collaborative, safe, diverse, and stimulating learning environment:

I am in my 7th semester of teaching at the University of Pittsburgh so far.

  • Philosophy of Psychology, Spring 2020 [syllabus]
  • Knowledge and Reality, Fall 2019
  • Concepts of Human Nature, Summer 2018  [syllabus]
  • Introduction to Philosophical Problems, Fall 2015 & Spring 2017
  • Philosophy of Mind, Fall 2016
  • Philosophy and Science, Spring 2016

A few other courses I have some ideas for include:

  • Bodies and Experiences (Introduction to Philosophy…with a twist!) [syllabus]
  • Phenomenology and Existentialism (a mixture of philosophy and literature) [syllabus]
  • Science and Society (based on Naomi Oreskes’s Why trust science?) [syllabus]
  • Philosophy of Perception
  • Philosophy of Sport (ok, mostly basketball, I admit)
