Learning can be fun!

  • I use active learning strategies to engage students in activities such as classroom discussions, peer learning, "clicker" questions, case studies, data analysis, and problem solving.
  • My co-authored Genetics laboratory manual has some non-traditional lab activities such as having students dress up like fruit flies to work out genetic crosses and using Legos ® bricks to simulate population genetics. (Danley, AH and Moehnke, MH. 2016 "Introduction to Genetics: A Laboratory Manual." 2nd edition. Bluedoor LLC)
