About Teaching Tales

Welcome to Teaching Tales, a Blog devoted to teaching college-level science, particularly Biology. I’ve been a college professor for over twenty years, teaching Biology and Neuroscience courses at Vassar College. I hope that you find the blog posts that I will make weekly, on Tuesdays, to be helpful. The first few posts will be a little more frequent, to get things going!
This blog is conceived for other college science teachers and will be filled with ideas and strategies for teaching science in ways that students will find exciting, fun and rigorous. Some posts will contain specific ideas for how to run a class discussion on the experimental science literature, how to get students jazzed about biology. Some posts will be stories and adventures in teaching science. Some will contain useful links and resources that I have found helpful. Please feel free to comment and add your own ideas.
