Dr. Kristen Cecala: Using An Ecosystem Services Approach to Water Resources in Biology 210 at Sewanee: the University of the South
Kristen Cecala, Sewanee: the University of the South
Ecology regularly integrates expertise developed in other disciplines to allow us to understand interactions in the natural world. Teaching concepts in ecosystem ecology that require rudimentary comprehension of chemistry for nutrient cycling and availability can be challenging for two reasons: 1) students have the misconception that scientific disciplines don't inform one another, and 2) nutrient cycling can seem abstract.

Kerry Byrne: Using Introducing the Wicked Problem of Global Food Security in Sustainable Human Ecology course at Oregon Institute of Technology
Kerry Byrne, Humboldt State University
As my course is the capstone course for Environmental Science majors, students have a strong background in ecology and systems thinking already. However, I desired to bolster my coverage of food security in the course, which is a common student interest. This module also incorporates the use of ArcGIS Online – students in the Environmental Science major are required to take at least one full year of GIS courses. I wanted to capitalize on one of the strengths of our program and have students do a more quantitative analysis using real data.
