My primary goal is to help students develop tools they need to more fruitfully explore ambiguous, complex, messy questions, both individually and with others.  Current and past courses I have taught include:

  • Pre-College Philosophy  - High School Ethics Bowl (experiential learning course in which undergraduates learn about ethics by helping local High School Ethics Bowl teams prepare for competition)
  • Pre-College Philosophy  - Philosophy for Children (experiential learning course in which undergraduates learn about philosophy by preparing to lead philosophy sessions in K-5 afterschool programs)
  • Morality & Law
  • Advanced Social and Political Philosophy
  • Philosophy of Law
  • Environmental Ethics
  • Medical Ethics
  • Introduction to Modern Logic
  • Philosophy and Current Issues
  • Introduction to Philosophy

I am also involved in the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl competition.  I am the faculty advisor and assistant coach for UNC's Ethics Bowl team, and was formerly the Ethics Bowl organizer and coach at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
