Teaching

I regularly teach courses in United States, African American, LBGTQ, oral, and public history. My approach to teaching emphasizes investigation, discussion, and active learning, and my upper-level and graduate courses push students to interpret the past for public audiences. For example:

  • in Fall 2017 students in my African American history course at Florida International University constructed digital exhibits for the African American AIDS History Project
  • in Fall 2014, students in my Introduction to Digital Humanities class at Stockton University worked together on a web platform for the Staring Out to Sea Oral History Project, a set of interviews conducted by students at Kean University about Hurricane Sandy in northern New Jersey

I’m happy to share teaching resources. Check out:
