Bringing Research Data into Undergraduate Classrooms
Anticipating NEON data
The Ecological Society of America (ESA) has partnered with Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education Synthesis (QUBES; qubeshub.org) to offer faculty mentoring networks to provide support and resources to faculty interested in bringing research data into undergraduate classrooms. QUBES (qubeshub.org) is an NSF-funded virtual center that supports collaboration to promote quantitative biology education at the undergraduate level. The QUBES Faculty Mentoring Networks are designed to support faculty understanding and implementation of specific quantitative biology concepts and teaching approaches. This partnership brings forward ESA’s initiative to prepare the education community for the massive volume of data to be available through the National Ecological Observatory Network project.
