Teaching Goals

As a first year graduate student giving my very first lecture on racism and sexism in a Social Psychology course, I knew teaching was one of my passions. I love the challenge of getting students interested in new topics, and I am thrilled to witness the energy they have when discovering something new. My greatest pleasures in teaching are moments when students engage in further discussion after class or a student drops by my office to inquire about a topic. My main goal as a teacher is to demonstrate the value of social science theory and application in students’ lives, emphasizing that learning should be an active, hands-on experience that continues long after the course ends. By combining a comfortable, personalized, yet energetic environment with a challenging curriculum, I hope to foster students’ genuine interest in course content, lifelong critical analysis skills, and appreciation of diversity of ideas and people.

"Dr. Case wanted us to find our individual voices" and "required us to expand our minds and apply what we had just read to the real world.”
