In 2013 I was the instructor weekly lab entitled PUI: Prototyping class. I modified previous years' syllabi, lecture slides, and homework assignments to better meet the needs of my students who were a mixture of HCI undergrads and grads. I was responsible for teaching concepts related to debugging, algorithms, and data structures in programming as well as units on paper/PowerPoint/Balsamiq/POP/Adobe Flex prototyping techniques.

In 2011 I was one of the lab instructors for the HCII's flagship course, User-Centered Research and Evaluation. I co-constructed lab lecture materials, small group activities, and grading rubrics with my fellow instructors during this semester-long lab course. I also received early course evaluations from students and an external review from my university's teaching center, both of which are available if you click through.

Near the beginning of my PhD, I participated in a course offered by the psychology department entitled "Educational Goals, Instruction, and Assessment" which was focused on research-based pedagogy methods. The 'Big Ideas' project specifically required linking readings from the research to teaching.
