Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: My learning goals for students are always at least two-fold. First, I want students to understand the concepts and the theories and second I want them to be able to apply them to real world in some way... [S]ometimes I'll have students look up current events and then analyze the current event using the concepts and theories from the course. Another way would be to look at things in popular culture... And sometimes in the classroom since all students seem to all have some kind of gadget that they can get online with... we'll have small group discussions and then I'll say okay let's look up fair trade items [or] how organic agriculture [or] how non-GMO products are advertised.
