Teaching

Since 2005, I have taught courses at Oakland University (Michigan) in writing -- and, since 2011, courses in interdisciplinary studies, including creativity (2011-2016) and religious/spiritual phenomena (2016-pres.).   In my current writing courses (WRT 150 & WRT 160), I lead rhetorical analyses and facilitate open-inquiry, student-centered projects.  

I have taught a course on creativity for the Honors College (2011); the capstone course (HS 402) for the Bachelor of Integrative Studies program (Summers 2011; 2012); and the introductory course for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies Program (LBS 100), Exploration of the Arts & Sciences: Exploratory Topic -- Creativity (Winters, 2013-2016); Exploratory Topic -- Spirits, Gods, & Aliens (Winter 2017).  A course for the Honors College entitled "Explaining Jesus: A Case in the Interdisciplinary Study of Religions" (HC 204) took place in Fall 2016.  A course for the Honors College entitled, "Spirits, Gods, & Aliens" is forthcoming in Winter 2018.
