  • Designed assignments, grading rubrics, projects and goals for a ten-week quarter
  • Project management: helped students develop individual projects on queer media, such as podcasts, blogs, text-based games and short documentaries
  • Arranged for guests working at the intersection of sexuality and media to come speak to the class, answer questions, and provide feedback on student projects
