Chuck Pearson probably has a more diverse teaching load in the sciences than you. The current semester’s teaching load contains general chemistry, general physics, physical chemistry and biochemistry. He’s taught across the sciences at Tusculum, from general biology to cellular and molecular biology to organic chemistry to non-majors physical science. He engages in random open educational resource efforts as a part of his teaching, and he has a fresh lab set up to renew previously latent research interests in biomolecular simulation.

So of course at his previous stop he just taught all physics, all the time.

He’s a longtime physical science pedagogue, recovering accidental biologist, and open education neophyte. He turns up in a couple of different places doing work in the open, whether that’s writing about his teaching philosophy or remotely talking to other educators at conferences and workshops.

You might want to see a CV.

He’s on Twitter and Instagram far too much, and on Facebook mostly just for quizbowl and to self-promote. And who really uses LinkedIn? (He has an about.me page, but this nearly renders that obsolete.)

Standard disclaimer
Nothing on this site reflects opinions or policy positions of Tusculum University, its administration or board of trustees; nor does it reflect such on insititutions he has worked at previously.

That’s an…interesting looking building. Where is it?
It’s Science Hall, on the campus of Virginia Intermont College, where he worked for three years. He left it behind well before he wanted to.

He took that picture in May 2014, right before he turned in his keys.

Pearson, are you writing this whole page in third person?
What? Why would you even suggest such a…

…yes. Yes, he is.

Was there a previous version of this page that had an “I” pronoun sticking around by mistake?

…yes. Yes, there was.
