Teaching overview

I teach a variety of classes: usually a portion of the Graduate Core course (phylogenetics), a mandatory course for all graduate students; a 400-level (upper level undergrads and beginning grad students) course on macroevolution; introductory biology (Biodiversity: Bio150); and a variety of smaller graduate seminars. My usual teaching load is Macroevolution every fall, Core every fall, Biodiversity every other spring, and usually a graduate seminar or two (often phyloseminar) per semester. In 2015-16, I’ll be stepping back from teaching Core to start a new, intensive graduate class on phylogenetic methods.

You can check the links above for updates to the courses, but an even easier way is to subscribe to an RSS feed. This is a way websites can let readers know when a new post is available; a popular free app for receiving these updates (on the web, iOS, or Android) is feedly, but there are many others, and some web browsers (Explorer, the newest Safari, Firefox, but not Chrome) also support this.
