Welcome Olivia, ASSETT’s Teaching, Learning, and Technology Initiatives Coordinator and a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics. She has eight years of teaching experience in higher education, in the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Colorado Boulder, and prior to joining CU, in the Department of English and Douglas Honors College at Central Washington University. Olivia was a CTL Lead Graduate Fellow from 2019-2021 and is passionate about providing engaged, informed, and inclusive pedagogy at all levels of the university.
