I teach at Elizabethtown College, a 4-year liberal arts college located between Harrisburg and Lancaster, PA. I’m fortunate to have wonderful students who keep me on my toes and are willing to wrestle with difficult ideas, as well as colleagues who are engaged and invested in improving ourselves. Numerous professional colleagues have been great about sharing materials and examples with me, both in person and via the web, and I want to follow their lead. To that end, I will use this site to share my thoughts about teaching psychology and some things that have worked for me. This will take the form of a blog hosted here that will launch in the near future. The blog will focus on classroom activities, course design, resources for teaching psychology courses, and other issues related to pedagogy. I will emphasize courses in the clinical and counseling realm, but will also cover general psychology and research methods.
To give you a better sense of who I am as an educator as well as some background about my teaching experience and responsibilities, I’ve provided my teaching philosophy and my typical rotation of courses. With each course, I provide a brief description and a recent syllabus to give you a sense of the course structure. If you have more questions about my courses, feel free to reach out using any of the media posted on the right of the page.
