Although I am new to the University of Colorado, I am an experienced college instructor.  One of my favorite courses to teach is Introduction to Social Psychology, and I am excited about delivering it in an on-line format.  I am also passionate about helping students recognize that we do not live in a meritocracy as many of them have been told.  I expect teaching Race and Ethnicity on-line, without the immediate give-and-take of the classroom, to be one of my most challenging professional experiences.
