Dr. Tall's training is cross-disciplinary; he enjoys teaching students to appreciate the interrelatedness of subjects.
My favorite subjects to teach are Anatomy Physiology and Cell Biology, and so I like to incorporate each of these subjects into the other. The benefits from such approach allow students in cell biology to appreciate how molecular interactions can determine our anatomy and physiology, our health, and our interactions with the environment. Likewise students studying Anatomy Physiology can learn the molecular mechanisms behind it all. Recently I have expanded to also teach in the non-science core: Christianity Culture in Dialogue. I also enjoy serving as a mentor for a graduate thesis and for an undergraduate independent study.
