Since 2007, I’ve instructed over 60 online courses and over 1600 students at Gulf Coast State College, Full Sail University, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I have experience teaching Business Communication Online, Creative Writing Online, Introduction to English Composition Online, English Composition I Online, English Composition II Online, Interpersonal Communication Online, Professional Communication and Presentation Online, as well as Public Speaking Online. Please read my Teaching Philosophy to learn more about my approach to teaching and learning.
I have experience using a variety of online learning platforms such as Blackboard, Canvas, WebCT, Angel, and Full Sail University’s in-house LMS platform, Full Sail Online (FSO). I use a variety of technologies to create a strong online learning experience for my students. I develop lessons in Keynote and iMovie; I host live sessions with my students using GoTo Training and Google Hangouts; and I create video feedback using QuickTime.

Sample Lessons – After learning more about teaching and learning from a public speaking and presentation perspective, I began to redesign my lessons. These are examples of those lessons applying the design philosophies of Nancy Duarte, Garr Reynolds, and others.
Sample Syllabus – As the Chair of the Public Speaking classes and instructors at Full Sail University, it was my responsibility to create our online course syllabus. In addition to the syllabus I created myself, you will also find a link to the Professional Communication and Presentation Online syllabus I contributed to under Chiara Ojeda.
