Some of you have already found TIEE, but if not…You can find a huge wealth of info and teaching tips at the Teaching Issues and Experiments in Ecology website.

Many open-access articles and some great resources. This includes data sets, slides, and tips on things like running a “turn to your neighbor” exercise.  There is also an essay titled Helping Your Students Interpret Figures and Tables: “Step One-Step Two.”  Alas, the inability to read a graph is a major problem for college freshmen.

BTW, Another useful resource is the SERC site for geology faculty, which has a ton of info on peer review in the classroom.

  1. Hi, I just wanted to leave here my blog address about ecology.

  2. Generally, when people leave links on a blog, it is customary to:
    A. not pimp a blog that seems to exist only to serve ads; and
    B. Contribute to the discussion.

    Convince me that either of those don’t apply to you, and I won’t remove your link.
