My teaching spans the areas of film and media studies, documentary production, and social and media anthropology, with a focus on aesthetics, art, sensory ethnography, and fieldwork based research methodologies.
As Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder in the Department of Critical Media Practices, I teach theory and practice based courses in nonfiction media-making, documentary, expanded ethnographic practices, and media aesthetics at the graduate and undergraduate levels. I have developed and taught the following courses: "Compound Visions: Theory and Practice of Sensory Ethnography," "Documentary Fieldwork," "Individual Study Projects," and "Media Aesthetics."
In fall 2017, I am teaching a graduate level documentary production course exploring Michel Chion's notion of audio-vision and co-teaching the Research and Methodologies course for incoming PhD students in Emergent Technologies and Media Practices with Kirk Ambrose, from the Department of Art and Art History at CU Boulder. For spring 2018, I am teaching two new courses for the Department of Critical Media Practices, "Ethnographic Media" and the PhD Production Method course for the PhD in Emergent Technologies and Media Practices.
