I was hired to create and teach courses in freshwater invertebrate zoology (BIO 414/514), stream ecology (BIO 464/564) and a laboratory to accompany the former. I have taught lab sections in several other courses (BIO 210 and BIO 341) and have been involved with their curricular development. My background in freshwater ecology, fisheries biology, and landscape ecology complements the teaching expertise of my colleagues in the departments of Biology, Microbiology, Chemistry and Geography/Earth Science.
I was a leader in the revision of the core curriculum for the Department of Biology (2003-2004). I also serve as the faculty advisor for the Aquatic Science Concentration (ASC) (25 – 30 students). As the ASC advisor, I am also responsible for the concentration’s web page, bulletin board and brochure. In December of 2003, I helped organize a conference on aquatic science education for the UW-System. Faculty participants from 5 other UW campuses met at UW-L to discuss teaching resources, field experience in courses, undergraduate research, and system-wide initiatives.
