Aaron Bunker, assistant professor of biology at Morningside College, recently spoke at the annual American Physiological Society Experimental Biology 2016 conference in San Diego, Calif.
His invited talk was part of a symposium about teaching outside of the classroom in non-traditional settings. He discussed his experiences preparing for a Morningside College May Term travel course to Peru in 2012 and reflected on the numerous experiential learning opportunities he incorporated throughout the entire expedition. The May Term included a trip to the Amazon Rainforest, the Andes Mountains and Machu Picchu.
The experimental biology conference is an annual multidisciplinary, scientific meeting featuring lectures, workshops, oral and poster sessions, on-site career services and exhibits of an array of equipment, supplies and publications required for research labs and experimental study.
Bunker has taught general physiology, histology and exercise physiology at Morningside since the fall of 2010. He received his doctorate in biomedical sciences from the University of Missouri.
