TeachinG

I have over 15 years of teaching experience at colleges and universities across Canada and the United States. My approach to teaching is largely a function of these experiences. I like to introduce students to the field of biological anthropology by exposing them to the material and by providing them with opportunities to practice what they learn in an engaging classroom and laboratory. In my classes, students take part in hands on activities (e.g., mummifying chickens, creating paleovideos - see below), discussion, and research, all of which stress the importance of critical thinking, writing, and speaking skills.

At St. Lawrence University I teach courses such as Human Origins, Dealing with the Dead, The Human Skeleton, Plagues and Peoples, and Forensic Anthropology. My pedagogy has been profiled in USA College Today.
