This resource seeks to provide a quantitative platform by which students can be taught about interactive effects using the TIEE module created by Little (2018)a. Key to the adaptation is the use of a Shiny app to create figures and R output for a model that fits an interaction between a driver of plant and macroinvertebrate richness and wetland permanence. Included in the resources are instructor notes, a pre/post assessment, student handouts, and a link to the Shiny app. The Shiny app can be accessed at https://kristoforvoss.shinyapps.io/dig_practice/.
