Small Group Teaching

  • Head judge, Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Undergraduate Case Competition.

  • Proposed a new course (accepted 2/16/23) for the MUSE (My U Signature Experience) course for fall 23 entitled Adventure, Crisis, and Leadership. These courses are small, intensive, and participation-based. They are intended to be taken in the first year of the U experience. Brief course description: Søren Kierkegaard wrote “to venture causes anxiety, but not to venture is to lose one’s self [. . .] and to venture in the highest is precisely to be conscious of one’s self.” In pursuit of self-knowledge and knowledge of the world, this course will investigate the practice of adventure as it plays out on raging rivers and high mountains as well as in the boardroom and the classroom. Readings, film, and case studies will inform our intellectual journey as we consider what it means to engage risk—as many effective leaders do—by courting adventure in strategic and creative ways. Along the way, we will also study how leaders manage the crises that emerge as the adventure of life unfolds.   08/21/2023  -  12/15/2023
