My teaching reflects the inherent interdisciplinarity of my research, ranging many subjects through listening, musical analysis, history, phenomenology, sound studies, the digital humanities, gender and sexuality studies and more. I implement activities and media to sustain student interest while appealing to the diverse learning strategies required for fostering an accessible and inclusive classroom by including wide-ranging modes of presentation (verbal, written, aural, synchronous, and asynchronous) as well as fostering discussions that invite differing perspectives while maintaining an equitable balance between students of varying levels, abilities, and backgrounds.
