Background

Biography

My primary focus is supporting the students taking the BI 10x General Biology courses (BI 101, 102, and 103). Over 2500 non-science majors take these courses each year to fulfill their baccalaureate core science perspectives requirements. We represent science to students who are taking their final formal science courses, and provide a rigorous and reflective experience that can scaffold continued science learning within informal settings. I am also interested in "learner-object" interactions, particularly how varied science artifacts can engage diverse learners. This area takes on increased importance as we develop and balance online and on-campus student experiences. Courses Taught BI 101 : Environmental Biology: Ecology, Conservation, Global Change BI 102 : Animal Biology: Genes, Behavior and Evolution of Life BI 103 : Human Biology: Anatomy, Physiology and Disease
