Welcome to ED 694. As your instructor it is my goal to create an active open cyber-learning community to exchange ideas and share resources on the topic of science teaching. I work since 2008 for the School of Education at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. My other teaching experiences include places like Germany, New Zealand, UK, and TX. My fields of expertise are in science (geoscience/physics) /mathematics education. I am actively promoting all fields of STEM education, duel enrollment options for students, and value an integrated approach to teaching. Flying gliders, travel, and photography are some of my hobbies. I believe that all students can learn and that learning is an useful, lifelong, creative and deeply human activity.
