Teaching

Accessibility and universal design are cornerstones of my pedagogy, and I work to make my classes pluralist in both letter and spirit. Among other teaching projects, I developed the first “Philosophy of Disability” (both in person and online) and “Social Epistemology” (under the listing “Ways of Knowing”) courses offered at UMass Lowell.

Here is a sample of some of the courses I’ve taught or will soon teach:

  • Bioethics and Genetics Research (UMass Lowell)
  • Philosophy of Disability (UMass Lowell)
  • Honors Intro to Ethics (UMass Lowell)
  • Ways of Knowing (Social Epistemology) (UMass Lowell)
  • Utopia and Dystopia (UMass Lowell)
  • Engineering Ethics (UMass Lowell)
  • Ethical Issues in Technology (UMass Lowell)
  • Existentialism and Phenomenology (UMass Lowell; Dillard University)
  • Philosophy of Medicine & Health (Emory University)
  • Bias, Perception, & Empathy (2x) (Emory University: team taught, interdisciplinary seminars)
