Scholarship of Teaching

Several of my refereed publications and book chapters have focused on pedagogy:
  • Using Quirk-Schofield diagrams to explain colloid dispersion (Mays 2007)
  • One-week module on stochastic groundwater modeling (Mays 2010)
  • Classroom demonstration on atmospheric water (Mays 2012)
  • Classroom demonstration on porosity (Kanold and Mays 2012)
  • Classroom demonstration on non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) ganglia (Mays 2012)
  • Resources for teaching water resources (Chan Hilton et al. 2012)

Excellence in Water Resources Education

From 2008-2013, I served on the Excellence in Water Resources Education Task Committee of the American Society of Civil Engineers. This committee wrote, tested, and published a book of classroom demonstrations for water concepts that sold over 330 copies in its first year of publication (Chan Hilton and Neupauer 2012).
