Teachers may contact Dr. Lindsey about agronomy, plant physiology, experimental design, and statistical analysis. He is interested in collaborating on curricular content relating plant biology, physics, and mathematics to agriculture.
What about teaching excites you?
I enjoy helping students experience the connection between science in a book and the real world.
What was your “aha” moment when you realized the value of using agriculture as a vehicle to teach science?
When I encountered real-world examples that can be used to help teach concepts or ideas that may seem abstract.
How do you help students make the industry or real-world connection to what they’re learning?
I ask students to work on projects to help them connect what we are learning to their own life experiences.
