From Jamie Allen’s ‘Friends as Fonts’

I’ve held a variety of administrative and creative roles in the Atlanta nonprofit arts community since leaving the Okinawa Institute for Science & Technology Graduate University in Japan.

I’m thrilled to have recently joined the faculty at Kennesaw State University where I am Limited Term Assistant Professor of Philosophy.

My university teaching career began Fall semester 2016 when I was invited to teach one section of Georgia State University’s undergraduate Critical Thinking through Writing course (ART3910-CTW “Critical Issues in Contemporary Art”) and their graduate MFA Thesis Writing seminar (ART6600).

I was promoted to Limited Term Faculty Lecturer for the Spring 17 semester and offered two more sections of ART3910-CTW as well as a graduate Art History seminar (AH6900 “Public-making in Contemporary Practices”).

I have an active teaching portfolio that I am consistently updating and tweaking in light of recent literature from the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

Each semester I request and benefit from my university’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). Based on their consultations and observations, I adjust my teaching to enhance my student’s learning and my teaching. During the Spring 2017 semester I was certified by Georgia State University’s CETL Learning Community which is designed to “improve student success, and instructor dedication in the classroom.”
