I returned to education about 15 years ago after working as a Research Associate at Yale Medical School and as a Senior Development Scientist at a small biotechnology company in Horsham, PA. Although my first love was always teaching, I feel that my research experiences in academia and industry have given me a broader perspective on the importance of the education that I’m providing. I can share with my students those skills that will serve them well not only when they further their education but also when they enter the workforce. My goals for my students are the following: 1) Meet the competencies outlined the syllabus so that they can use this course as a stepping stone within their higher education, 2) Develop critical thinking skills in order to utilize the content material in solving problems, 3) Identify learning strategies that will serve them well into the future, and 4) Apply biological concepts to their daily lives. I provide my students with a variety of learning tools to assist them in meeting those goals. I go beyond the traditional lectures and textbook and provide them with links, animations, collaborative learning exercises, and self-tests. Once students have "learned how learn", countless doors open up before them.
