TEACHING EXPERIENCE

 

1.     At Ca Foscari University of Venice, Venice

 

§  LT 006P: English Language and Linguistics (undergraduate)

This one-year course offers a general B2+ level English course, and a one-semester linguistic introduction to English phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics.  The course also examines how variation in accents and dialects interacts with various aspects of human life in society.  Students examine how variation arises, how it can be described, what role it plays in how people perceive themselves and others, the role is plays in literature, film, humor, and music.

§  LT 501P: English Language and Linguistics (undergraduate)

This one-year course consists of a general C1 level English course, and a one-semester linguistic introduction to English phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics for students in Cultural and Linguistic Mediation Studies. The course also examines how variation in accents and dialects interacts with various aspects of cross-cultural communication.

 

§  LMJ090: English Language and Psycholinguistics (graduate)

This one-year course consists of a general B2+ to C1+ level English course, and a one-semester introduction to English from a cognitive science perspective.

 

2.     At Hunter College, City University of New York, NY

 

A. Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (Accredited clinical MS program in speech language pathology)

 

§  COMSC 604: Introduction to Language Science (undergraduate course)

This course is a prerequisite for graduate studies in Speech-language pathology. The course is an introduction to the cognitive science of language covering the basics of (English) linguistics and language acquisition in the areas of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics. I taught the course in Spring 2009, Fall 2009, Spring 2010, Fall 2010, Spring 2011, Fall 2011.

 

§  COMSC 607. Phonetics of American English (undergraduate course)

This course is a prerequisite for graduate studies in Speech-language pathology. The course covers articulatory phonetics of American English, clinical phonetics and phonology, (IPA and extended IPA), varieties of American English, non-native speech. I taught the course in Spring 2009, Fall 2009, Spring 2010, Fall 2010, Spring 2011, Fall 2011.

 

§  COMSC 712. Neural Processes of Communication (graduate course)

This course addresses the anatomy physiology of normal processes of speech, language, hearing, vision, cognition, and communication, the development of the human nervous system; neurological bases of language and communicative disorders. I taught the course in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014.

 

§  COMSC 726. Adult Neurogenic Communication Disorders (graduate course)

This course addresses the neurological, linguistic, cognitive and/or psychological aspects of acquired communication disorders in the adult population. The course focuses on the differential aphasia classifications and diagnosis and treatment of receptive and expressive language and speech disorders in aphasia. I taught the course in: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015.

 

§  COMSC 715: Communication Processes related to Aging (graduate course)

This course covers language, communication and cognitive processes across the life span in normal and abnormal aging, prevention, assessment and treatment. I developed this new course in the Speech Pathology Curriculum. I taught the course in 2013, 2014, 2015.

 

§  COMSC 705: Summative Research Project (graduate course)

This course is a two-semester research practicum course aimed at allowing students to develop and conduct an original research project in speech-language pathology, write it up as an MA thesis, and present it in a formal conference-style presentation at the end of their second year. Students gain hands on practice as investigators in research in speech-language pathology. Students apply the knowledge acquired in prior research methods courses by carrying out an individual research project using research methods best suited for the research question. I taught the course in 2012-2013, 2013-2014.

 

§  The ICF and the speech-language pathologist (2-ASHA CEUs)

Course description: Although speech-language pathologists see clients on a daily basis, they may be unfamiliar with how the ICF model relates to the intervention practices. This course will focus on practical strategies to enable speech-language pathologists to utilize the ICF model when considering treatment practices. I taught the course in 2014.

 

B. Department of Psychology

 

§  Research Methods in Experimental and Social Psychology. This course is an intensive one-semester research practicum aimed at allowing students to develop and conduct an original behavioral research project in psychology. The course covers the bases of qualitative and quantitative research methods in social and cognitive psychology. Students gain hands on practice both as participants and as investigators in laboratory experiments. They develop an understanding of the ethical considerations involved in conducting research, they become familiar with a number of examples of research design using different methods, and develop skills in critiquing published research. Students apply this knowledge by carrying out an individual research project using research methods best suited for the research question. They conceptualize the research question, determine the research design, collect and analyze the data, and write up the findings in American Psychological Association (APA) style. I taught the course in Spring 2004.
