Learning Communities and Peer Mentoring

Collaborative learning and mutual mentorship are critically important to me. It helps me to learn, challenge myself, and feel supported and useful. I derive great fulfillment from sharing what I know with others, and I am motivated by the accountability, encouragement, and creativity that working in a team or a pair provides.

The following are some examples of opportunities I have seized to participate in learning communities and to mentor peers:

In addition, I have provided peer feedback on colleagues' teaching and program facilitation in the Dissertation Writing Groups (2018) and in the Department of Anthropology (2017, for a fellow graduate student instructor), both at Indiana University Bloomington.
