EcoEd Webinar

An EcoEd Webinar: Math, Computing, Undergraduate Ecology Education and Large Datasets: An Example from a Citizen Science Program, sponsored by NIMBioS and the Ecological Society of America (ESA), was held Sept. 8, 2010, at NIMBioS. The webinar focused on math and computational education for ecology undergrads and illustrated how a large field dataset can be used to motivate hypothesis formulation and assessment by undergraduates.
