Teaching & Instructional Technology

I founded the City College of New York’s City Lab, which is a digital collaboration that brings full time and adjunct faculty together to develop and highlight resources and support for writing, research, communication, and teaching in the Division of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences/Center for Worker Education (CWE), where I teach sociology courses, with a focus on labor, political economy, social and urban theory, and methodology. My courses are writing-intensive and often incorporate semester long digital projects, such as collaboratively designed and developed course websites, student documentary projects, or the development of a digital writing portfolio. Before teaching at City College, I taught Labor Studies courses in the Department of Urban Studies at Queens College.

I was also an Instructional Technology Fellow at Macaulay Honors College, where I consulted with faculty about digital projects and pedagogy and worked with students to design and implement digital scholarship. Before I was an ITF, I was a Writing Fellow at LaGuardia Community College. I loved working with faculty and students there. We even made a short, online documentary about our work. My time at LaGuardia fundamentally shaped my desire to be in a classroom and to “make things” with students, particularly adult and working students.
