Teaching


I have taught the Introductory Zoology course in the Department of Biology for 20 years. In the fall of 2015, I was awarded a Presidential Teaching Fellowship allowing me to teach both Perspectives and Colloquium courses within the Honors College.  These are small writing intensive classes that explore topics of the professor’s choosing. My Perspectives class, “Navigation of Bees, Ants, and Scorpions,”  is a research based class that is also cross-listed as a Cornerstone class within the Department of Biology. My Colloquium courses center on discussions of cultural selection and evolution, and the modern technological exploits of our ancient senses!
