ESA Data Explorers FMN
This Spring 2019, the Ecological Society of America (ESA; esa.org) and Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis project (QUBES; qubeshub.org) are pleased to offer a unique networking and professional development opportunity.
Are you a community college or lower-division instructor interested in bringing data-driven lessons into your classroom but not sure where to start? If so, apply now to join us for the Spring 2019 ESA/QUBES Data Explorers Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN)! Participants in this FMN will focus on how to effectively teach students data analysis and data visualization skills using Teaching Issues and Experiments in Ecology (TIEE) modules in undergraduate biology courses. Accepted applicants will customize and implement newly designed educational modules from a wide range of ecology topics. They will also receive mentoring throughout the process, as well as collaborate with and support others in the network through biweekly virtual sessions. Other benefits include recognition as an ESA Education Scholar and a $500 award to participants who complete the FMN requirements. Funding support for the award comes from a grant to ESA from the National Science Foundation.
