Modern Concepts of Bioscience Laboratory I and II 

The objective of the Modern Concepts of Bioscience Laboratory I was to familiarize students with biological processes and concepts through experimental emphasis on cell biology, metabolism, and genetics. 

The objective of the Modern Concepts of Bioscience Laboratory II was to familiarize students with biological processes and concepts through experimental emphasis on morphology, general physiology, and ecology. This course was my favorite to teach. 

As the instructor of record, I lectured and then led them through the experiment of the week using the teaching microscope, going around to each student's dissection and fully engaging with students to answer questions. While I focused on traditional aspects of biological processes, I worked hard to find real life examples and connections to pique typically pre-medical students interest, particularly in taxonomy taught during 1106.

Human Physiology

The objective of the Human Physiology lab was to familiarize pre-health students with the scientific process as it relates to physiology. Students designed, executed and wrote a scientific manuscript over an experiment that they conducted using the iWorx Human Physiology System. The questions ranged from the effects of reading horror novels on heart rate to how various visual impairments affect hand response time. 

As the instructor of record, I worked closely with groups of students to design experiments which would appropriately address their physiology questions. I lectured on appropriate statistical methods based on how data was collected and gave written feedback on each section of their manuscripts.
