Welcome. I'm a professor in the philosophy department at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, CA. If you are one of my current or prospective students, the course reader PDFs for my Phil 101 (Introduction) and Phil 103 (Logic) classes are linked below. My YouTube channel with the accompanying lectures is also linked.

Some additional articles:

My UCSD dissertation, which tested different online learning techniques to develop students' higher order reasoning skills on online discussion boards.
