Christopher Uhl

Christopher Uhl is a professor of Biology at Penn State.  In his own words, Uhl explains his teaching philosophy:  "... teaching grows out of my experiences as a learner.  Looking back over my learning history, I note that often my true "classrooms" and best "teachers" have shown up ion daily life, not in formal education settings.  ... Learning for me has been synonymous with living, a realization congruent with John Dewey's view that humans learn best by doing!"
