Dear BIS Students,

It is my pleasure to announce that BIS has hired a new Term Assistant 
Professor, Dr. Aaron Winter.  

Dr. Winter graduated Summa Cum Laude from Wake Forest University with a 
major in English. He then earned his MA and PhD degrees in English from the 
University of California Irvine. In 2009-10 he had a postdoctoral teaching 
position at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan. He has extensive teaching 
experience and was recognized as an outstanding teaching assistant. 

During the interview process, Dr. Winter distinguished himself in his 
understanding on interdisciplinary teaching and learning. He has taught several 
interdisciplinary courses including a writing course on epistemology and a first-
year humanities core course at Irvine.  Dr. Winter brings intellectual energy and 
good humor as well as a commitment to working with diverse learners at Mason. 

Although it is not reflected on Patriot Web yet, Dr. Winter will be teaching the 
following sections of BIS courses in the Fall 2010:

	BIS 390-002 (CRN 80500) on Wednesdays from 7:20-10pm, and 
	BIS 490-005 (CRN 80501) on Mondays from 7:20-10pm. 
Wed like to thank you for your patience in the scheduling process over the 
summer and in being flexible with your class schedules.  Please know that there 
are several seats open in the above BIS 490 class on Mondays from 7:20-10pm 
and encourage students that may be able to switch to that section to do so.  
We are aiming to even out enrollment numbers in those two sections in order to 
provide more personal attention to student needs throughout the semester.

If you have any questions, please contact the department.

All the best,

Jeannie Brown Leonard, PhD.
