This session will provide participants with a hands-on opportunity to submit their own ecology teaching resource to ESA’s EcoEd Digital Library (beta). EcoEdDL is a searchable online platform where ecology educators can share the tested educational resources they have developed with the ecology education community. The library provides free access to high-quality teaching resources that have been peer-reviewed for scientific accuracy and instructional value.

Participants will be guided on developing useful metadata and descriptive information, the peer review process, and ways to continue supporting one another as educators using EcoEdDL’s interactive site tools and features. Emphasis will be placed on developing quality digital library resources, and on EcoEdDL’s role in fostering a community of ecology educators and researchers. Participants will then have the opportunity to access the EcoEdDL site to submit one of their own teaching resources for review and publication in the digital library, with guidance from session organizers.

Registration Fee: $0
