As a Teaching Fellow at Yale University I led discussion sections for the following courses:
Introductory Biology: Principles of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Spring 2016
An introductory course on Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, designed to be the entry point to which students can begin the analysis of whole organisms, populations, and ecosystems. As a Teaching Fellow, each week I led discussions of primary literature. I designed and administered quizzes and writing assignments, held review sessions, and graded assignments and exams.
General Ecology, Fall 2016
We explored the theory and practice of ecology, including the ecology of individuals, population dynamics, and ecosystem function. As a Teaching Fellow I designed and graded assignments, and trained the students to do some basic field work collecting and analyzing avian occurrence data.
Evolutionary Biology, Spring 2017
An overview of evolutionary theory, including an introduction to population genetics and life history evolution. As a Teaching fellow I led weekly discussions of primary literature, as well as labs giving students and introduction into mathematical modeling of evolutionary dynamics. I also administered and graded assignments and exams.
Conservation Biology, Fall 2020
An introduction to ecological and evolutionary principles underpinning efforts to conserve Earth’s biodiversity. Efforts to halt the rapid increase in disappearance of both plants and animals. Discussion of sociological and economic issues. As a Teaching fellow I led weekly discussions of primary literature. I also administered helped to write, and graded assignments and exams.
