I teach genetics and do research in evolutionary microbiology at the University of British Columbia. This blog is about my teaching, and about other teaching-related ideas and issues.

No TAs?!? No tutorials?!?
It's sad but true. The ~2000 students who take BIOL121 each year get only lectures with about 225 students per class. There are no tutorials, because no money is allocated to pay the graduate students who would act as teaching assistants.
