Teaching and Mentoring

Learning from each other in and beyond the classroom.

Teaching & Mentoring

Main content start

The Hadly Lab facilitates learning in the classroom and also through one to one mentoring, lab meetings and our collaborations in the field and in the lab.

  • Teaching: Committed to teaching, outreach and improving STEM education, Liz Hadly is currently supported as an HHMI Professor to develop a new immersive ecology field course with a primary objective of bringing more under-represented minorities into the field. She was Senior Associate Vice Provost for undergraduate education in 2013-16.

  • Mentoring: We place a high value and emphasis on teaching and learning through mentoring. We mentor undergraduate, masters, and high school students in the lab and in the field. All our mentees are encouraged to attend and actively participate in lab meetings. 

    Get Involved - Research
  • Lab meetings: In our weekly lab meetings we tackle wide-ranging questions from scientific challenges to conversations about our well-being and belonging. Email Dr Hadly or a current lab member if you would like to attend.

Discussion-based Seminar

Conservation and Population Genomics

This once a week reading and discussion group will focus on adaptive capacity: how fast and how well species, populations and individual organisms react to climate change. This seminar will explore what we know about adaptive capacity of different communities and different species. How fast can adaptation happen? How much can adaptation "solve" the problems generated by climate change? How do we measure adaptive capacity? 
Details: BIO 386, co-taught with Stephen Palumbi (Hopkins Marine Station)

Ethics in the Anthropocene

We explore the role of ethics in the environmental and conservation sciences by discussing the philosophical foundations for moral values in the Anthropocene, as well as by examining practical current-day issues, such as reintroductions, invasive species and conservation advocacy. Ethics in the Anthropocene is usually taught in Spring Quarter, for one unit of credit. It is open to undergraduates and graduate students.
