Over the last few years, I’ve been extremely lucky to work with some truly outstanding students here at CU Boulder. In addition, I’ve been able to pursue some game-changing ideas in the educational technology space.
In early 2015, Arts & Science Support of Education through Technology (ASSETT) awarded me the Outstanding Teacher for Technology in Teaching award. I was nominated by 13 students for my Fall 2014 course Perspectives on Language: Metaphor & Mind.
Upon nomination by the Linguistics Department, I was awarded the Graduate Student Instructorship Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Colorado, Boulder Graduate School for the 2013-2014 academic year.
In early 2014, I served as Co-Principal Investigator on a Small Business Innovation Research grant for $150,000 awarded by the National Science Foundation. The grant supported the production of Nano Nano, a language-learning game for mobile devices now available on the App Store.
