I have returned from a productive, rejuvenating and enjoyable sabbatical last year, spent at California Lutheran University. I am back on the campus of the University of Dayton, teaching two sections of Analytic Geometry and Calculus II and Intermediate Analysis.
I served (2009-2014) as Director of Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching), a professional development program of the MAA for new and recent PhDs in the mathematical sciences who are interested in improving the learning and teaching of undergraduate mathematics. Project NExT addresses all aspects of faculty responsibilities, including research, teaching and service. Each year, about 80 Fellows are selected to participate. The first cohort of Project NExT Fellows was selected in 1994. There are now over 1560 Project NExT Fellows.
National mathematics honorary society. UD has a chapter.
The Competition is held annually on the first Saturday in December.
