Microbiomes to Ecosystems: Evolution and Biodiversity across Scale, Space, and Time

Teaching biodiversity? What has worked for you? What has not?
Biodiversity concepts span microbiomes to broad landscapes. Today, we have many sources of data and new tools for teaching and learning the amazing biodiversity of life on earth. The 5th Life Discovery- Doing Science Education conference (LDC) welcomes proposals for short presentations and workshops.  All are welcome to present at our unique interactive Education Share Fair for teaching ideas at any stage of development. 
So whether you have solutions or are struggling to teach biodiversity with scale, space or time in mind, LDC welcomes your contribution!
Jointly organized by:
Ecological Society of America, Botanical Society of America and Society for the Study of Evolution.

Data Discovery Faculty Mentoring Network

The Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education Synthesis (QUBES) Project and the Ecological Society of America (ESA) are currently in their third round of Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMNs). These online communities are professional development opportunities where participants work collaboratively to discover new teaching materials, pedagogical techniques, and quantitative content.  
All faculty are welcome. We actively seek participation from faculty teaching at all undergraduate levels at diverse institution types and serving diverse student populations, including non-science majors.

ESA Data Discovery

The Spring 2018 ESA Data Discovery FMN participants are interested in adapting existing Teaching Issues and Experiments in Ecology (TIEE) modules for use in their Spring 2018 courses. Faculty participants are implementing two selected modules with a focus on providing students with the quantitative skillset needed to ‘scale up’ to large ecological datasets. Please visit for more information.
