Teaching

I have designed 17 entirely new courses for universities and colleges. Fifty percent of this designing was for at-a-distance learning, approximately half of which were synchronous courses and half were asynchronous. Many of the courses I have designed contain both synchronous and asynchronous peer-to-peer interaction. I have taught 23 other courses designed originally by others. This amounts to 40 different courses over the span of my career. For a breakdown of which course was taught where, please see my academic CV.
