Teaching

I have taught courses in a range of disciplines (History, English and Technical Communication) at many colleges, including Lehigh University (Bethlehem, PA), the University of Warwick (Coventry, England) and at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA). I have also guest lectured at Columbia University (New York, NY) and the University of Worcester (Worcester, England).

Sample of Courses taught:

HIST 397: Social History of Medicine in Early Modern Europe

LMC 3403: Technical Communication for Pre-Health Majors

ENG 228: Seventeenth-Century Literature and Culture

Select student evaluations from Georgia Tech (2011-2012):

– “Dr. DiMeo is one of the best professors I have had in my 4 years here at GT. I really enjoyed this course and will use the communication techniques I learned here throughout my academic and business career.”
– “I enjoyed this course. My peers and I agree, we never got bored and time never seemed to go slowly. We were engaged and learning useful and relevant information from an instructor who was enthusiastic and knew her stuff: what more can you ask for!”

– “She was amazing. I’ve heard bad stories about some instructors in this course before, but she was always enthusiastic and always had some sort of fascinating lecture. I thought I would find this class boring, but it ended up being one of the most interesting of my semester. She should be a role model for other Technical Communication instructors. Feedback was always very helpful. Discussions in class were always fascinating and on controversial and interesting topics – and they were done right and felt fluid, not awkward like many other instructors. Her enthusiasm was spectacular, and she always had the best mood in the world – I would always cheer up by being in her class. She was a fantastic listener and always gave you her undivided attention when listening to you. She spoke to you on a personal level and didn’t put on an air of superiority like many instructors do, which is one reason why I learned so much in her class.”

– “I had a blast in a course I wasn’t even expecting to enjoy. Grade: A”

– Greatest Strength: “facilitating discussion between students and not just being an enthusiastic instructor, but also encouraging enthusiasm in students for the course material

– Greatest Strength: “Very approachable and easy to understand. She genuinely cares for her students and how well they are doing.”
