Talks and Presentations

Bring me to your campus! I give talks and facilitate workshops across the country and enjoy working with groups of students, faculty, and staff. I can speak and facilitate sessions on a range of topics; below are some of the areas in which I have particular expertise and experience:

  • Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) work in the classroom and on campus
  • Inclusive Pedagogy from Theory to Practice
  • Teaching Fraught Topics and Handling “Hot Moments” in the Classroom
  • Course and Syllabus Design
  • Transparent Learning and Student Success
  • Equitable Assessment Design and Practices
  • Online, Hybrid, and HyFlex Teaching and Learning

I will work closely with you to ensure that my visit is of maximum assistance to your community, and helps start or advance important conversations around teaching, learning, student success, and social and educational justice. I am comfortable working with not just faculty, but staff and administration as well.

I’m always excited for opportunities to share experiences and perspectives with colleagues. Since Fall, 2021, I’ve given talks and workshops at institutions such as the University of Virginia, Truman State University, the State University of New York (SUNY) System, Vincennes University, Youngstown State University, the University of Wisconsin—Parkside, Kirkwood Community College, Bethel College, Franklin College, Southern Utah University, University of Wisconsin—River Falls, Western Carolina University, Lenoir-Rhyne University, and the University of Wyoming. My curriculum vitae has a full record of my engagements and the institutions with whom I’ve been fortunate to work.

NOTE: with the Covid-19 virus continuing to disrupt in-person gatherings and conferences, I should note that I am also available to facilitate virtual keynotes/sessions/workshops; I am an experienced “virtual presenter” on a variety of platforms, including Zoom, Teams, and Webex.

As of August, 2021, I have resumed in-person campus visits. I am fully vaccinated and boosted against Covid-19, and am more than happy to follow any and all health protocols while I am a guest on your campus.
