Teaching Experience

Associate Instructor, O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University Bloomington:

Length of engagement: January 2020-present.

Course taught:
SPEA-V 186: Introduction to Public Budgeting & Finance

Average enrollment: 60-80 students.

I teach this course each fall and spring semester. Details about this course and my approach to teaching it can be found here.

Adjunct Professor, Department of Economics, University of South Dakota:

Length of engagement: August 2014-July 2017.

Courses taught:
ECON 201: Principles of Microeconomics
ECON 202: Principles of Macroeconomics

Average enrollment: 50-75 students.

These courses were taught online using the D2L learning management system. Lectures were asynchronous and were recorded in a studio on campus, while office hours and discussion sessions were conducted using Blackboard's Collaborate application.

ECON 580 is a course taken by incoming Master of Business Administration students who had not previously studied economics. It provides an overview of microeconomics and macroeconomics taught at the same level as ECON 201 and ECON 202.

I taught two sections each of ECON 201 and 202 and one section of ECON 580 each academic year.

Adjunct Professor, Southeast Community College, Lincoln, Nebraska:

Average enrollment: 15-20 students.

I taught two sections each quarter, one in person on campus and one online using the Moodle learning management system. I taught Principles of Macroeconomics each spring quarter, and Principles of Microeconomics the remaining quarters.
