This adaptation highlights the utility of the Lichens in YOUR Local Landscape module for teaching field skills, quantitative analysis across scales, and for writing research papers.
Adapted from: Lichens in Diverse Landscapes: EREN-NEON Flexible Learning Project v 1.0
This adaptation of the Lichens in YOUR Local Landscape EREN-NEON Flexible Learning Project was developed to support student learning of ecological study design, quantitative skills, and written scientific communication. The slides present (1) an overview of the use of the EREN-NEON-FLPs in a hybrid ecology course at McDaniel College in Spring 2021, (2) the utility of the Lichens project for teaching both field and analytical skills, and (3) a framework for integrating this project into future classes. The narrative document provides additional context and a description of the multi-scale analysis conducted in Spring 2021.
