He has had the opportunity to instruct in the UAB Honors program, as well as to guide student honors theses, public presentations, and published essays. Moore journeyed on foot with groups of UAB students across northern Spain along the Road to Santiago in 2010 and in 2014.

His critical edition of the Libro de los huéspedes (2008) was awarded the MLA Committee on Scholarly Editions Seal of Approval. Moore’s co-edited monographic issue of La corónica entitled The Road to Santiago and Pilgrimage (2008) contains his article “Juxtaposing James the Greater: Interpreting the Interstices of Santiago as Peregrino and Matamoros,” which received an Honorable Mention in the 2007 Frederick W. Conner Prize in the History of Ideas.
