Here is a very rough lecture example from my "Comparative Anatomy" class (on the torso and neck). My animal references and imagery are pulled from the Joe Weatherly, Eliot Goldfinger, and Ellenberger books.

Summer quarter at CGMA


Hi All, Just wanted to let you know that registration for the summer term at CGMA started today. This is a great program that I really enjoy getting to teach for. Additionally, for being an on-line school it comes closest by far to replicating the on-site experience. I am currently teaching 2 classes there. If anyone has any questions, feel free to let me know.

Here are a few links for more info
