I pride myself on being an effective teacher and believe that the most productive learning is experiential in nature. It is extremely rewarding to see my students engaging with and applying the concepts I teach, especially concepts about which I am passionate. As a part of my commitment to teaching and continuous improvement, I am always searching for new and exciting ways for students to explore and actively experience concepts in class.
As I build and clean up teaching activities and resources (to a point where I'm not embarrassed by the state of them) I will list them here.
If one of the activities or resources I post here seems like it could be useful in your classroom, but doesn't work for one reason or another, let me know. I can try to modify it to work for you. Again, I can't guarantee I'll be able to fulfill every request, but the purpose of this page is to facilitate teaching, so I will always do my best provided I have the time.
Feel free to download, use or change anything I list here as you see fit for your own teaching purposes.

As with any software, I cannot guarantee anything here will work as intended, or even work at all. I'm an HRM/OB researcher first and a programmer second; I don't write programs or macros with the intention of having them work across all platforms or hardware. Everything here works on my modern Microsoft Windows operating systems and lab computers (with the appropriate libraries installed).
Finally, be sure to exercise appropriate caution when downloading software or macros from the Internet. While none of these tools have been designed to cause harm to your system, by downloading any tool I have listed here, you agree that I will not be held responsible for any damage they might cause to your system, directly or indirectly. Hopefully by publicly associating my name with the tools I have listed here you can trust them to (at least attempt to) do what they're supposed to and nothing more. Do not download software from sources you don't explicitly trust!
