Teaching and Mentoring

Sharon’s teaching focuses on facilitating the process of learning through critical engagement of theoretical texts and empirical studies, self-reflection, dialogue, and fieldwork. She uses a variety of participatory teaching methods to help students understand and analyze the material thoroughly. She also brings comparative and global perspectives to her classes and explains sociological concepts using cases that are accessible and culturally resonant. Lastly, she is an advocate of using technology like social media and podcasts to foster meaningful student-centered learning. Sharon has regularly taught core courses, electives, and seminars as well as the required tutorial for all first-year students.

Aside from teaching, Sharon has also mentored and supervised independent research conducted by students.
