Amy Wassing enjoys teaching a variety of courses at Cal State, in all modalities (face-to-face, hybrid, online synchronous, and fully asynchronous). In addition to being a full-time lecturer at Cal State San Bernardino, she also served as Forensics Director (Speech & Debate Team) for 3 years (2016-2019), leading the largest team Cal State has ever had. The team traveled to tournaments all over the west coast and won many awards in debate and individual speaking events. She also developed and facilitated CAST (Coyote Annual Speech Tournament) giving students an opportunity to showcase their oral communication skills and win prizes for their talent. She has provided guidance and training to several GTAs (graduate teaching associates) by serving as a shadow instructor. Many of those GTAs now teach in the department as part time lecturers and/or as adjunct faculty at community colleges in the Inland Empire. More recently, she participated in a Community of Practice (CoP) in 2019 to update and revise the requirements for the general education course, Comm 1006: Oral Communication, which were approved by the Communication Studies Curriculum Committee and adopted beginning Fall 2020. She facilitated the GTA Summer Training Workshop in 2022 to prepare the new GTAs for teaching their classes in fall. She has been honored by several CSUSB athletes as an MVP (Most Valuable Professor), most recently in spring 2022.
