Areas of Interest
I have 3 decades of experience teaching Biology labs at the post secondary level. I enjoy passing on my love of Biology through engaging with the students in the laboratory, supporting their learning journey, and encouraging them to excel at their chosen field of study. In terms of my Biology background, I consider myself to be a generalist in the field of Biology. My area of specialty as an undergraduate was Botany, specifically conifer biology but I have a well rounded education in other areas of Biology as well. In recent years my professional interests have become more directed towards pedagogy (the science of teaching) aiming to improve the courses I teach in order to better support student learning. I feel strongly that it is important for students to have experiential learning experiences in order to better understand the scientific method, develop good benchtop skills, learn how to present information/data professionally, and improve their critical thinking. These are all employable skills that will give them a solid foundation as they move into the workforce in their chosen field.
