I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to lecture and tutor at three Western Australian universities. This not only allows me to teach a variety of subjects, but introduces me to a wide-range of interesting students! Although it does mean lots of faces to remember… Some of the courses I have been involved in are described below.
Undergraduate courses within the Department of Environment and Agriculture:
- Marine mammal taxonomy for Marine Biodiversity 200 (Lecturer)
- Marine mammal research techniques for Advanced Marine Science and Technology 300 (Lecturer)
- Statistical procedures for biology students in Quantitative Biology 201 (Tutor)
Postgraduate courses within the Department of Petroleum Engineering:
- Marine ecology and environmental surveying for Safety, Reliability and Integrity Management 517 (Lecturer)
University of Notre Dame
In the past, I have lectured for the Foundations of Environmental Education unit, where I taught communication skills and how to design environmental education activities. I also lectured in protected area management for the Natural Resource Management unit.
University of Western Australia
Within the science communication branch, I tutored for SCOM 1101 Introduction to Scientific Practices unit which taught students basic scientific skills and different methods of communication. I also tutored in the ENVT2250 Ecology unit, which covers various ecological topics such as invasive species management, fire ecology, and experimental design.
