Inquiry Based and Conventional Laboratories
My previous teaching experience spans inquiry based activities and laboratory courses at two universities. I have been exposed to a range of teaching philosophies and have developed tools that will allow me to teach effectively in diverse enviroments. My inquiry teaching knowledge stems from the Institute for Scientist and Engineering Educators (ISEE) workshops from their Professional Development Program (PDP) and my traditional teaching techniques are derived from my laboratory teaching experiences at the University of Colorado at Boulder and at the University of Iowa . I have also been a Calculus I tutor for the Iowa Biosciences Advantage Program.
