Penn Summer Undergraduate Program for Educating Radiation Scientists - Ongoing
Preparing Future Faculty - Spring 2014
This two-semester course serves to instruct graduate students interested in the academic field about the pedagogy and theories of teaching concepts, as well as many of the nuances of life as a professor, including conflict resolution, culture sensitivity, job acquisition, and grant writing. One of the assignments of the class, as part of the job acquisition practice, is to prepare a micro-teaching lecture which was given to the class as a representation of those given during job interviews. As part of my belief in hands-on learning and flipped classroom models, I designed a class which would instruct the classroom about how pathogens evolve and develop.

Survey of Multimodal Molecular Imaging - Fall 2014
Having taken the first generation of this course in the Summer of 2013, I requested to serve as the teaching assistant for the Molecular Imaging class, taught by my advisor, Dr. Peter Panizzi. I was requested to give a lecture, as well as a tour, of our bioluminescent imaging techniques. Due to the large amount of concepts in the field, coupled with the short amount (2 hours) of lecture time a week on the topic, I also assisted the instructors by creating videos which I hoped would "fill in the gaps" of material covered in class. Below, I've provided a few examples of these videos.
