Thoughts from My Class on Small Things Considered!

Here is a quick post, while I am trying to learn some bioinformatics at Argonne National Lab.  

My thoughts about teaching microbiology at a small liberal arts institution, and what some of my students thought about microbiology, appeared today in the ASM sponsored microbiology blog, "Small Things Considered."  I hope that the post gives a flavor of the kind of classroom I try to create, and the experiences my students hopefully gain.

You can read the essay here.


  1. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, do you think you could e-mail me?


  2. I"m happy to hear from you---I haven't been posting recently, but will back to it in a week or so. Until then, you can find my e-mail at the University of Puget Sound... I don't want to type it here for fear of spambots.


I am happy to hear your comments and suggestions. I hope to avoid spammage. We shall see how that works out!
