Deena Levy (portrait)

Please join us in welcoming Deena Levy to our instructional consulting staff.

Dr. Levy comes to us from Penn State’s department of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, where she taught upper and lower division language, literature, culture, and honors courses in the Italian program. Her academic interests include teaching and learning with technological resources, language learning and music, autobiography, women in the Italian Resistance, Italy and WWII, Jewish Italian literature and culture, and film. She has published and presented on autobiographical writing of women in the Italian Resistance, as well as teaching and learning with technology (with a particular emphasis on language learning/teaching).

Levy will consult with faculty and conduct workshops on all issues related to teaching and learning, with a special emphasis on teaching and learning with technology, as well as teaching language.
