From my 15+ years of teaching I have now distilled my most potent lectures from various courses and modified them for a guest-lecture format on Zoom/ Skype/ Microsoft Teams. With a little adaptation to suit the needs and learning objectives of your particular course and audience, each lecture can be delivered in a ninety-minute version. Depending on your specific learning objectives and technological capacity, these ninety minutes can include interactive engagement, close reading activities and academic writing practice. 

Interactive engagement, close reading activities with optional follow-up activities and assignments.

If you are teaching a course that connects to any of my lecture-themes, please consider inviting me as a guest lecturer for your class. Commensurate with your institution’s standard rate and the complexity you desire (high school/ undergrad/ graduate level etc), I’m happy to negotiate the price. Please contact me to dialog about ideas for custom-fitting my lecture for your particular needs.

Aika's lectures captivated me mentally and spiritually. She made me feel seen as a student and individual. She nurtured my mind, rather than simply teaching. I looked forward to attending her class, even when the topics were difficult or heavy subjects, and she still managed to execute them with such a grace. She has truly left an indelible mark on my journey as a lifelong learner.
