During my research fellowship at Linköping University (2018-2022), most of my teaching is done through public outreach like my YouTube videos and guest lectures. I also do Skype a Scientist, and it has been wonderful to connect with high school students everywhere from Madagascar to Lithuania to Russia.
My prior teaching has been in anthropology, communication and language, social psychology, and social research methods. I have taught lectures of several hundred students, seminars of fewer than ten students, and everything in between. My teaching aims to make the research process as accessible and practical as possible, so students are empowered with the skills to head out and satisfy their curiosity about the world and build on our ever growing scientific knowledge and humanistic endeavours. Most of my classes have incorporated undertaking a new research project, without assuming any prior ability or experience in doing so, as well as questioning and critiquing existing research. I am inspired everyday by the language phenomena that surround me in conversations, popular media, and texts, and I aim to encourage students to see the amazing details and structures in everyday language.
