Teaching and Learning

My goal as an instructor is to provide a supportive environment for students to explore biology, and connect it to society, in an inclusive environment. I aim to provide opportunities for students to learn, and engage with, new details about biology because regardless of your major, we all eat food, get sick, and use “stuff” – which is possible because of biology!  I enjoy using external video resources, in class assignments, team based learning, and academic service learning, to help students make connections between the content of the course and their “real-lives” on and off campus.  I am also Safe Zone and Superior Allies trained.
