My fundamental goal as an instructor is to help students become independent critical thinkers. My curriculum development work has focused specifically on how inclusion of history and philosophy of biology can address misconceptions, and promote learning of science content and issues associated with the nature of science. A teaching portfolio summarizes my teaching experience. A list of courses I no longer teach is located here.
