Insect Physiology (#IB427)

Bioinspiration (#IB411)

During the Fall of 2013 I thought Bioinspiration for the first time. For one of the modules the students described and (sometimes) sketched a bioinspired robot. Surprisingly (ha!) most robots were based on insects, but one creative student designed a digging robot inspired by plant awn’s.

Emerging Infectious Diseases (IB531)

Sustainability and Global Change (#IB532)

In January 2013 I used the Twitter-verse to get an answer to a student’s question: “How does one “do” taxonomy. I storified the background and responses.

I also serve as the coordinator for the School of Integrative Biology Online Learning Team. In that capacity I try to share content with faculty and instructors on online learning pedagogy and tools.
