As a science educator, my teaching philosophy emphasizes challenging my students to think (a lot) and develop:
1) an appreciation of science as a way of learning how the natural world works,
2) strong critical thinking skills, and
3) the ability to learn independently.
Courses I teach (or have taught) at Sonoma State University are listed below and include links to recent syllabi so you can get a sense of the kinds of learning experiences I create for my students and the range of topics we address in each course.
Students enrolled in my classes may access course materials via Moodle
