I teach a range of courses from introductory psychology to senior seminar in psychology. My specialty is teaching courses related to clinical psychology including adult abnormal, child and adolescent abnormal, behavior modification, testing and measurements, sleep and dreams, and group therapy. I teach both F2F and online courses.
Advocating for excellence in teaching: Students should expect a classroom environment that has been designed to encourage their learning and the use of teaching methods that have been shown to increase their learning. I am involved in creating the opportunities – through workshops, presentations, and peer review – for faculty to learn how to provide such environments.
Pedagogy Related Research: Scientific evidence should be used as the basis for determining teaching methods. I see my classroom as a laboratory for collecting date that documents student learning.
Student Stalking of Faculty: My major area of research in the past five years has focused on illuminating the problem of student stalking faculty including the factors that lead to such stalking and faculty development efforts to reduce student stalking.
Student Led Research: Students have the opportunity to work with me on their own research ideas, present at conferences, and to publish their work.
