Using ecological research data in undergraduate courses has many potential benefits for student learning. Students gain knowledge of ecological concepts, increased understanding of the scientific process, and meaningful opportunities to develop and practice quantitative skills (Langen et al. 2014). As ecological datasets continue to become larger and more complex, faculty may need additional support both to build their own skills and to teach effectively with research data.
