Jamie Kopco is finishing up his Ph.D. in Entomology. Kopco writes for the Office of Teaching and Learning blog. His series of blog posts focus on a variety of teaching topics for new faculty and graduate students. Many long-time faculty may enjoy reading his perspective on being a new instructor and things that “bug” him (He’s an entomologist after all), and may find a few valuable gems of information along the way.
Among other pedagogical tasks, he is teaching an undergrad/grad class, doing science outreach, and generally trying to foster a sense of curiosity and discovery.
