EREN-NEON Flexible Learning Projects Faculty Mentoring Network:

Teaching Ecology During A Pandemic

Brought to you by

 

Goals

  • Learn how to retain an element of field ecology in your course while still teaching online or in a hybrid environment
  • Implement and provide feedback on at least one field ecology project that teaches ecological concepts and skills
  • Benefit from online support throughout the process of implementing new materials in your course

Final Products

This is a 2-part lab activity based on the EREN-NEON Flexible Learning Project: Lichens in Diverse Landscapes. Students conduct field surveys of lichen abundance near their homes and explore large-scale geospatial data on lichens and the environment.

This project uses Lichens to connect students with their local environmental air quality. Through a short lab session, students assess lichens growing on trees on their campus. They then use class generated data to test a hypothesis about air quality.
