My teaching goal is to use student-centered, inclusive teaching pedagogies to foster critical thinking, offer students opportunities to acquire new academic skills, and bring an international perspective to students' thinking.
I am currently a Writing-Across-Curriculum Fellow at Kingsborough Community College. Through this fellowship, I realize the importance of incorporating informal and formal writings throughout teaching process and let students clarify thinking through various forms of writing. I also love to incorporate digital and media tools into my classroom, such as the usage of the interactive mapping website, SocialExplorer.com and short documentaries for students to visually understand sociological concepts.
Please find below my sample syllabus and a short documentary I shot for teaching purpose.
