I'm teaching four courses at the University of Toronto in 2017-18: Aristotle's Ethics (syllabus, readings), Philosophy of Emotions (syllabus, readings, first essay), Ethics of Race & Gender (focusing on cultural appropriation and white blindness), and Business Ethics.
Previously, I've taught a lecture course on Ancient Philosophy (Summer 2014), two courses on Environmental Ethics (Summer 2015 and Spring 2017; syllabus, readings, first essay, second essay, third essay), and a seminar on the Philosophy of Emotions (Spring 2017).
In 2015, I was awarded the Martha Lile Love Award for Excellence in Teaching Philosophy for my interdisciplinary Environmental Ethics course, which consisted largely of students from the life sciences.
I am committed to improving students' abilities to write powerfully and concisely. In 2016-2017, I was the philosophy department's Lead Writing TA. Among other things, I trained graduate student TAs on how to provide effective written feedback on undergraduate philosophy papers and collaborated with colleagues to improve the design of their writing assignments. This continued work I began in 2016 as the departmental Essay Clinician, in which capacity I led workshops for undergraduate students on how to write philosophy, assuming no prior experience, and consulted with 15-20 students per week to improve the structure and clarity of their papers. Here are two guides I made: Giving Feedback and How to Write a Philosophy Paper.
In addition to my work as sole instructor, I've led tutorials for Introduction to Ethics (Fall 2015, with T. Hurka), Later Medieval Philosophy (Spring 2015, with D. Black), and Ancient Philosophy (Fall 2012-Spring 2013, with J. Whiting, and B. Inwood).
In 2006, I taught a course on English Language & Literature at the Changchun University of Chinese Medicine in Changchun, China.
I am happy to provide a teaching statement, diversity statement, and student evaluations upon request.
