180-degree rotational ambigram for the word “teacher”

The influence of “the design way” permeates all aspects of my teaching, from the manner in which the courses are constructed, the activities students engage in, and in how learning is evaluated. I approach my teaching as a designer, attempting to craft powerful, compelling, aesthetic, and rewarding learning experiences for my students. I expect and demand excellence of myself and try to foster a learning environment where I model principles of effective teaching, create an inclusive professional community of practice, create meaningful learning opportunities for students, and demonstrate a passion for knowledge and learning. There are four key themes to my teaching: (a) Connecting technology to ideas; (b) Facilitating collaborative engagement with authentic activities; (c) Modeling scholarship and passion; (d) Personal experiments with technologies for learning. 

I have taught at undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels in the areas of educational psychology, educational technology, creativity, design, and media. I have also taught courses and conducted workshops on creativity, innovation and design for the MBA program at the Indian School of Business (Hyderabad) as well as the Executive MBA program at the Broad School of Business, Michigan State University. I have been lucky to receive many accolades for my teaching, including a Lilly Faculty Fellowship (2001), the MSU Teacher Scholar Award (2004), the College of Education’s Teaching Excellence Award (2006), and the AT&T-MSU award for Instructional Technology (twice, once in 2008 for best online course & again in 2013 for best hybrid/blended course).

Below is a list of all the classes I have taught over the years.

NOTE: I do NOT archive any student work. All the work that students do in my classes are hosted on their own professional/personal websites. If you were a student in my class and have lost the work you have done (due to a hard-drive crash, forgotten password, whatever) I will NOT be able to help you. Sorry.
