At Utrecht University, I am involved in teaching and/or coordinating various courses in computational linguistics, phonology, phonetics, and psycholinguistics, as detailed below. In addition, I am an undergraduate tutor (academic advisor) and I supervise Artificial Intelligence and Linguistics theses.
- graduate Foundations of Sound Patterns (course coordination and teaching)
- graduate Digital Methods in Linguistics (course coordination and teaching)
- undergraduate Psychology of Language (course coordination only)
- undergraduate Language and Computation (course coordination and teaching)
- undergraduate Speech Production and Perception at University College Utrecht (course coordination and teaching)
- undergraduate Formele en natuurlijke talen [Formal and natural languages] (part of teaching team)
- undergraduate Computationele linguïstiek [Computational linguistics] (part of teaching team)
I hold two teaching qualifications: the Dutch Basiskwalificatie Onderwijs (Basic Teaching Qualification), obtained in 2021, and the UK Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, obtained in 2018. I teach in both Dutch and English, and I have contributed to our bilingual Linguistics undergraduate program at Utrecht University by translating existing Dutch materials into English.
Previous teaching experience
At the University of Toronto, I taught undergraduate and graduate courses, including a PhD research seminar on exceptions in phonology, as shown below. I also supervised PhD students (Teaching Assistants, a Research Assistant, and I was on committees for a Generals Paper and for a dissertation).
- undergraduate Historical Linguistics (syllabus)
- undergraduate Sound Patterns in Language (syllabus)
- undergraduate Special Topics: Computational Phonology (syllabus)
- graduate Phonological Theory (syllabus)
- graduate Advanced Phonology II (syllabus), a seminar on lexical exceptions in phonology.
At the University of Huddersfield, I taught the four courses below. In addition, I supervised several undergraduate theses, and I also took part in the department’s outreach activities and helped organize Self-Improvement Clinics for the students.
- Field Linguistics (module leader; syllabus)
- Phonetics and Phonology (module leader; syllabus)
- Introduction to Descriptive Linguistics (module tutor; syllabus)
- Sociolinguistics (module tutor).
At Harvard University, I taught the four courses listed below. In addition, I supervised two independent study projects (presented at the LSA Annual Meeting and the Old World Conference in Phonology).
- undergraduate Sounds of Language (syllabus)
- graduate Phonological Theory I (syllabus)
- graduate Phonological Theory II (syllabus)
- graduate Advanced Phonology (syllabus), an introduction to computational methods for hidden structure learning (both syntax and phonology).
Finally, during my PhD education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, I gained experience in teaching introductory courses in linguistics:
- Introduction to Linguistic Theory (instructor; syllabus)
- People and their Language (teaching assistant).
