The Open University has their OpenLearn section which has lecture materials on a variety of subjects, but it doesn't include much from the evolution course, all I could find was Evolution: artificial selection and domestication which doesn't seem to directly relate to anything in my course materials.
Obviously I have access to rather more material; equally obviously I can't freely post it here.
BTW, since the course uses Futuyma's Evolution (1st edition, not 2nd) as it's core text. You could, in principle, pretty much follow along.
(Futuyama pages 1-14, and box 3A on p48-49)
Unsurprisingly, the first section of the course is a pretty gentle introduction, giving a historical perspective on the development of evolutionary theory for the most part. Here, we learn of Lamarck, and the essential differences between Darwin and Lamarck, and the near concurrent discoveries of evolution by Wallace and Darwin.
Darwin's theory is described as being composed of five distinct parts: evolution as such (i.e. species change over time), common descent, gradualism, populational change and natural selection.
Futuyma then moves on to discuss what happened afterwards, with the general rejection of natural selection as the mechanism of evolution until the 1930s and 1940s when the modern synthesis emerged, and gives a detailed description of the views of the modern synthesis. And brushes through post-synthesis development, particularly molecular genetics, evo-devo and Kimura's neutral theory. It then moves on to discuss the philosophical implications of evolution, and the nature of evolution as fact and theory.
Surprisingly to me, both the companion text and Futuyma launch into scathing attacks on creationism itself, dismissing it as wrong headed pseudoscience, whilst stressing that science has nothing to say on the existence of God per se.
The companion text then guides a leap ahead of Futuyma to a summary of the evidence for evolution, given as eight points: the hierarchical organization of life, homology, embryological similarities, vestigial characters, convergence, suboptimal design, geographic distribution and intermediate forms.
Finally, the section closes with a short video giving a broad overview of evolution, concentrating on homology (discussed in hippos and dolphins) and convergent evolution (illustrated by dolphins and penguins), and looking ahead to some of what will later be discussed in the course.
Not a lot of meat here, really, but it's an introduction so I wasn't expecting that much. A clear description of the modern synthesis is probably the only part I wasn't particularly familiar with beforehand.
Yes, the 2005 edition. It is possible that there are new nuances new to the evo or evo-devo world (the next synthesis? phenotype effects?) that could be provided in the course material. I would expect this from a quality course, rather than be tied to "dogma" in the textbook.
Does he provide any new way of looking at the definition of evolution with all these elements? or does he still keep a simple "change in the frequency distribution of alleles ..." approach?
"[C]hange in the frequency distribution of alleles ..." is not mentioned explicitly, although the first of the "theories" ascribed to Darwin does mirror that. I've always been of the view it's a downright terrible definition of evolution so I'm not disappointed by that. As for changes with regard to the more modern elements - not in the introduction, although I suspect there's more on that later. Here there's just a few paragraphs summarising the existence of the various recent ideas (although, interestingly, punc eq doesn't even merit a mention).
