In the past, I have also independently designed and taught third and fourth-year undergraduate courses at the University of British Columbia:
ANTH313: Anthropology of Gender
ANTH407: Ethnographic Methods: Acquiring Research Skills

and at Concordia University:
ANTH398: Special Topics in Anthropology: Peace and Violence

As lecturer, I build on experiences as tutorial leader and teaching assistant for thirteen different courses in interdisciplinary Anthropology, Sociology, Linguistics, and Communication Studies programs, including courses such as Dialogue in Global Society, Kinship and International Migration and Ethnicity. I also served as head teaching assistant for a distance education (online) course on the Sociology of Business for five consecutive terms.

I actively work with and contribute to pedagogical initiatives. After completing a 25-hour seminar on teaching and learning in higher education at Concordia, I twice served as facilitator and teaching assistant for three similar seminars. I also worked as research assistant for various projects related to the scholarship of teaching and learning in higher education and co-organized an international workshop-style symposium on assessment practices.
