A collection of "Topic Guides" for Introduction to Linguistics
When teaching Introduction to Linguistics remotely in the 2020-2021 academic year, I created a series of content videos and accompanying "topic guides". Since these represented a considerable investment of time and energy, I've decided to make both available online, under a CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0 license! Anyone is free to use or adapt them for their own teaching—if this spares anyone work when teaching a similar course, especially anyone employed in a more precarious position than I am, I will be delighted.
Note: These videos have automatic captions, but these have considerable errors. Time constraints (and the lack of institutional support for ensuring accessibility) prevented me from being able to produce human-corrected captions. The written topic guides were intended to cover all necessary material, partly to ensure this was available to students for whom videos were not accessible for whatever reason.
If you notice any errors or feel any corrections are needed, please don't hesitate to send me an email.
Teaching Development and Resources
As a member of Teaching Introduction to Linguistics Community of Practice (TILCoP Canada) I've been involved with the creation of the Word to the Whys podcast, created as an accompaniment to any Introduction to Linguistics course.
Teaching @ Queen's University
At Queen's I teach in the Linguistics program, which is housed in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. I've taught the following courses at Queen's:

If you're interested in seeing syllabi or materials for any of these courses, please send me an email!
EGG 2014 (University of Debrecen)
In 2014 I taught two courses at the European Generative Grammar summer school, at the University of Debrecen.
The Representation of Aspect
Topic: the relationship between viewpoint aspect and situation aspect, their syntactic representation in terms of features, and how that representation can interact with other syntactic phenomena such as case assignment.
