Below are descriptions of courses I currently teach at the University of Toronto, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.  Full syllabi and details are available on U of T Portal/Blackboard.

Behaviour and Behavioural Ecology
(EEB 322, co-taught with Becky Raboy)

This 3rd year course is comprised of both lectures and laboratory/field projects. The goal is to provide  students with a broad introduction to animal behaviour emphasizing concepts from ethology and behavioural ecology.   The topics I cover include aims and methods of the study of animal behaviour, behaviour genetics, parental care, mating systems, other aspects of social behaviour (e.g. reproductive skew), migration and navigation, and behaviour syndromes.

Seminar in Ecology and Evolution
(EEB 495, co-taught with Nicole Mideo)

This is a seminar-based course for 4th year students interested in ecology and evolution.  The goal is to allow students to read, digest and present papers to their peers.   My section covers exemplary papers on phenotypic evolution, often in a quantitative genetics framework.  The aim is the synthesis of concepts and observations ultimately to reconcile patterns observed at both microevolutionary and macroevolutionary scales.
