Flu Planning in Oshkosh - Bio 315/515 RESULTS

2003 Recipient of UW-Oshkosh Distinguished Teaching Award

I teach primarily introductory courses for undergraduates. These classes include: Microbial Survey (BIO 233), Introduction to Molecular and Cellular Biology (BIO 323) and Virology (BIO 315). In addition, I supervise upper level students in various independent study and related readings courses. 

I have also been involved in cross-disciplinary projects. For example in the spring semester, 2001, three very different classes at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh joined together to create the “Flu Project”, a multidisciplinary approach to learning about types of research relevant to the study of epidemiology, archeology, and gerontology. As a result of participating in the “Flu Project” through their individual courses, 70 students participated in data collection and analysis about the spread of a deadly disease, the memorialization of those who died from the disease, and the memories of those who survived.

During the Spring of 2003, a similar study was conducted regarding the effects of polio on the Winnebago and Outgamie counties during the 1940-1960.
