For 2 years, I designed, developed, taught and iterated on a large-scale seminar about How the Internet Works or
internet-class for short. This was a new course when I was hired, meaning all content was produced from the ground up. My role involved:
- Developing in-class activities with other Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Faculty
- Producing video content for our flipped-classroom style
- Running class sections and trouble-shooting all aspects of the course
- Organizing our 30 other TAs on a weekly basis
internet-class debuted to 440 freshmen students in Fall 2016, and increased to 660 by Fall 2017.
Much of the work I did beginning in 2016 remain intact and part of the current course. This includes activities I developed, course structure, and overall course identity I helped to shape.
