Hi! I have taught at Saddleback College since 1990. My collegiate background includes a major in Wildlife Management at the University of Nebraska, followed by a Ph.D. in 1985 from the University of California-Davis in Ecology. My graduate work focused on the growth of algae in Lake Tahoe as a function of various physical parameters, including nutrient input resulting from development within the basin, and my research involved sampling algae by SCUBA.
At Saddleback College, I have taught Introduction to Biology, Human Anatomy, Animal Diversity and Ecology, and Plant Diversity and Genetics. Currently, I teach Introduction to Biology (Biology 20), Human Anatomy (Biology 11), and Modern Theories of Evolution (Biology 40). My sections of Biology 20 are taught as a hybrid course, with the lectures online. Biology 40 is an entirely online class, and I have enjoyed the shift in half of my teaching load to online instruction during the past 8 years. I was on sabbatical in Spring of '13, developed a hybrid distance ed Human Anatomy course, which I am currently teaching.
I have a simple faculty web page, and if you want to see my primary course materials (syllabus, etc.), go to: http://www.saddleback.edu/faculty/jhorlings. If you have questions, please feel free to email me.
