As part of a UISFL grant awarded to the Center for Asian Studies, I created a series of open access online learning modules on the Canvas platform to support student learning of Tibetan. The course serves as curriculum material for CU Boulder’s Certificate in Tibetan and Himalayan Studies, as well as an Open Educational Resource accessible to all external communities.

I also serve as Project Manager for a 3-year Curriculum Quality project based on CU Boulder’s Quality Teaching Initiative that aims to improve the non-credit language classes, as well as support and empower ALTEC’s contingent faculty. Some of the projects I have completed so far include:

1. designing a FREE Foundations Course for 7 languages

2. designing syllabi templates for all ALTEC language classes

3. creating the placement assessment for non-credit German classes

As Lead Instructor of German, I have invested significant personal time writing grants and facilitating a partnership between ALTEC and the BGHRA to provide free German classes to Black German postwar adoptees. You can read more about this project here.
