I am interested in new approaches for teaching and learning, including computer assisted instruction and small group discussions. Highlights of my histology teaching.
More than 40 published research papers and abstracts have focused mainly on the cytogenetics and evolutionary biology of poeciliid fishes. Recently Dr. Monaco has begun to study neurodevelopment using a zebrafish model. He is also interested in computer assisted instruction and small group learning methods.
