Over the last few years I have become increasingly interested in effective teaching, grounded in evidence-based pedagogical practices.  To this end, I have worked frequently with the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence & Educational Innovation at CMU.  In addition to participating in workshops, I frequently meet with Eberly Center consultants for advice in designing my syllabi and courses, and in June 2019 participated in the Eberly Center's Teaching as Research Institute.

CMU Signature Course

Over the course of Summer 2020, together with my colleagues Mandy Simons and Thomas Werner, I am overhauling 80-180 Nature of Language  as part of the Eberly Center's Signature Course initiative.  The goal is to develop OLI modules to support remote and hybrid instruction, in part driven by CMU's COVID-19 response, and with the goal of creating quality online materials for future iterations.
