I have a varied teaching history with topics ranging from public speaking skills to intercultural communication competence to technologically mediated communication to methodological issues. Below I have collected examples of course titles I have taught at the university level. The list is not exhaustive. I have for example taught research method in Finnish as well as in English, but the rough categories presented below and the example-titles should provide a well-rounded view into the topics that I typically deal with in my teachings. Sometimes it is also nice to go beyond one’s own comfort zone, as I have done with visits outside the academia, or into different disciplines.
