I teach 7 classes and supervise 7 others per year.
Systematics of Birds (on campus each fall)
Avian Conservation and Management (on campus in fall of odd-numbered years and a graduate online offering each fall)
Wildlife Ecology (on campus in fall and a graduate online offering each spring)
Citizen Science (online each winter and summer)
Teaching has always been an integral part of my professional life. I began college-level teaching during graduate school. Since then, I have taught the following courses. The list makes me look much more educated than I really am. I know enough to know that I know very little.
Diversity of Animal Life—Invertebrates (GTA 1988)
Natural History of Vertebrates (GTA 1989)
Animal Behavior (GTA 1989, 1991)
Upland Gamebirds (GTA 1990)
Ornithology (GTA 1988, 1989, 1991, 1993, Professor 2004, 2006-2010)
Ecology (GTA 1991, 1992, 1994)
Genetics, Evolution and Biodiversity (GTA 1992)
Environmental Science (GTA 1993)
Environmental Biology (Professor 1998, 1999, 2000)
Community Ecology (Professor 2000)
Conservation Biology (Professor 2001)
Group Problem Solving (Professor 2004-2007, 2011)
Wildlife Ecology (Professor 2002-11, 2013- )
Avian Conservation and Management (Professor 2002, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017)
Systematics of Birds (Professor 2003-11, 2013- )
Conservation Genetics (Professor 2011-6)
Citizen Science (Professor 2016- )
Plus, graduate special topics courses on eight different topics have been taught.
From 2012 to date I also supervised 7 terms of e-campus courses each year to support two of my graduate students.
I present research at scientific conferences as well as at societies and festivals. I generally speak to the public about putting their birding knowledge to good use.
