My interests lie in teaching multi-level astronomy courses incorporating active student participation in lectures, labs, and on-line exercises, and curriculum development for these courses, including a published lecture activity book: Learning Astronomy by Doing Astronomy – Collaborative Lecture Activities. Members of the League of Astronomers and I are involved in a long-term project doing photometry of little-studied open clusters to determine stellar metallicities based on Stromgren observations at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory in Victoria, BC.  I am involved in the outreach program here, primarily with the Jacobsen Observatory, and in teaching students how to give great scientific public talks.
