LAMP fellow of the month

Rachel Watson designated me LAMP fellow of the month and wrote a really kind article about how I learned about Problem-based Learning this summer at the Science Initiative Summer Institute, planned to enact it in Genetics, but then ended up teaching General Ecology. I am waiting on the end-of-semester surveys to see how implementing this active learning technique was received by the students, but I think I saw positive results on their ecological reasoning skills on exams!
