Professional Development

Most of my development within the past few years has been primarily focused on fiddling with my teaching techniques rather than participating specifically in the scholarship of teaching and learning. I have been active in the Association of College and University Biology Educators (ACUBE) for 10 years and am currently serving as President of that organization. The last meeting’s topic was assessment, and my department would like to use some of those lessons to do a more comprehensive study of the effectiveness of our curriculum. In addition, I have reviewed five or six articles for our journal, Bioscene over the past two years. Also, as part of my duties in ACUBE, I attended the educational summit co-sponsored by AIBS and NSF that was held in Washington, D.C. last spring.

As far as publications, I have published a case study on the website for the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science within the last two years. I have an additional teaching technique manuscript that I need to prepare for submission.
