This home page serves as a general index for material related to the courses I teach as a professor of psychology at Bowling Green State University Firelands College in Ohio. I am also a member of BGSU's Graduate College and hold a Professorship of Teaching Excellence at the university. Some of the classes on the site are for undergraduates, others are for graduates, some may be taken for continuing education credits, and a few are completely online. Feel free to look around, but note that the goal of the site is to be functional. Thus, I keep the use of graphics to a minimum so that pages will load faster which is helpful for students working at home. Similarly, I use fairly large print throughout the site because it shows up better on projector screens in class and training situations. If you experience difficulty or notice something upon which I could improve, then please contact me as I want the site to be pleasant and helpful.

Note: The caricature is by a former student whom I feel is a wonderful artist. He captured something students often call "the look," a facial expression with a raised eyebrow that is a friendly invitation to be a little skeptical upon occasion. Some people don't quite know what to make of a caricature on a professional page, so a "real" photo of me is provided below. The site may contain copyrighted material, so you probably should ask for permission if you decide to link to or copy pages but I won't get all excited if you don't.
