My new teaching duties have not been defined yet, after the move from Wood Science and Engineering (and the undergrad Renewable Materials program) to Forest Ecosystems and Society.
I taught three classes in Fall 2011: WSE 321, Chemistry and Anatomy of Renewable Materials, 4 credits--I taught the anatomy part WSE 390, Global Issues in Renewable Materials, 3 credits, a WIC (writing-intensive course) FS 599, Special Topics, Ecology and Evolution (a grad class that accompanies the EcoEvo seminar series)
I will teach a course for the University Honors College in Spring 2011: WSE 470H, Forests, Wood and Civilization, 3 credits.
This baccalaureate core class (satisfying the requirement for Global Contemporary Issues) is designed to learn about the roles of forests and wood in civilizations of the past and present, and to think about the future. I welcome junior and senior students from all majors, regardless of their background in natural resources. The course emphasizes critical thinking skills by introducing topics for which there are no correct answers.
