Skills & Interests

  • Science and Technology/Biology/Evolutionary Biology (Advanced)
    I teach "Foundations of Science" for non-science major, preservice, preK-9 teachers. It has become overwhelmingly apparent that teachers are choosing not to teach this centerpiece of the life sciences because of personal beliefs. I'm constantly in search of techniques and philosophies that might help raise the level of understanding of evolution in our society. A key population on which to focus these efforts is elementary and middle school teachers. Helping future teachers to become comfortable with the concept of evolution could go a long way toward returning evolution to the heart of the study of life, where it belongs.
  • Education/TeacherEd/Teaching Methods/Science (Intermediate)
    Since my appointment as Director of the Center for Science Education in 2000, the focus of my work has evolved from preparing biologists to preparing teachers of science, some of whom might also be biologists. I am actively involved with a University work group tasked with distributing the responsibility for educating educators from a single department to the entire campus. My expertise is in part, then, the result of a type of immersion.
