Since 2005, I have taught courses at Oakland University (Michigan, USA) in writing -- and, since 2011, courses in interdisciplinary studies, including creativity (2011-2016) and religious/spiritual and related phenomena (2016-pres.). In my writing courses (WRT 1060), I lead rhetorical analyses and facilitate open-inquiry, student-centered research projects.
I have taught a course on creativity for the Honors College (2011); the capstone course (HS 402) for the Bachelor of Integrative Studies program (Summers 2011; 2012); and the introductory course for the Bachelor of Liberal Studies Program (LBS 100), Exploration of the Arts & Sciences: Exploratory Topic -- Creativity (Winters, 2013-2016); and Exploratory Topic -- Spirits, Gods, & Aliens (Winters 2017-2018, 2019 forthcoming).
A course for the Honors College entitled "Explaining Jesus: A Case in the Interdisciplinary Study of Religions" (HC 2004) took place in Fall 2016. A course for the Honors College entitled, "Spirits, Gods, & Aliens" ran this past Winter (2018). Forthcoming in the Honors College is "Movies and Mortality" (Winter 2019 forthcoming.)
