SS 14 - Ecology education in the Ecological Society of America
This special session is for members of the education section and others interested in ecology education to meet and discuss ecology education. This session will include a summary of progress over the past year and breakout groups to define the next steps for action. Based on workshops at the 2005 and 2006 meeting, participants will break into focus groups: 1) Standards—-what do we want them to know/do; 2) Issues of diversity in class; 3) Public understanding; 4) Literature review based on cognition; 5) Distance learning; 6) Field work and IT; 7) Diagnostic assessment tools; and 8) Course design. Online discussion through the Education Section website until the Annual Meeting will refine these groups. There will also be time to discuss next year’s ESA Annual Meeting, which will have an ecology education theme.
