This portfolio is the product of four years of teaching and enrollment in the Certificate of Accomplishment in Teaching program at NCSU. In my first year, I taught lab sections for an introduction to economics (EC 205). In my second year, I taught two sections of an introduction to macroeconomics (EC 202). This was the first class I created independently, from selecting the book to writing lectures and exams. I have gone on to teach several sections of Environmental Economics (ARE 336), Econometrics (EC 351), and a special topics course in Development Economics (EC 495) that I designed. Through the CoAT program, I have learned several teaching techniques and have had the chance to reflect on and improve my own methods. This portfolio is a sample of the work I have done in the past four years.
I have organized my portfolio to help you find relevant information about my teaching. My Teaching Philosophy is a short document describing my goals in the classroom and how I meet them. I have also provided Evidence of Teaching, which includes a description of courses I have taught and links to several Artifacts like lectures and worksheets I have used. Finally, I have included Evidence of Learning, which contains brief descriptions of workshops I attended and a short reflection on what I have learned through my participation in CoAT. This page also includes two essays I wrote synthesizing some of the material I learned and applied through CoAT.
