About Walter

Walter is a Lecturer in the Program in Technical Communication. In the classroom, Walter focuses on having students develop a self-aware writing process so that they can practice and improve communication skills in future classes and professional contexts. He also instructs with the goal of helping students understand the disciplinary and critical thinking expectations applied
to particular assignments.

Prior to coming to Michigan, Walter served as a Teaching Fellow for the Writing Across the Curriculum and English 1 programs at University of California, Riverside, and he has taught World Literature courses at multiple institutions. His approach to learning and teaching has also been shaped by learning to play multiple instruments at different phases of life.
