Dr. Baran to Develop Open Content on Aquatic Toxicology

Open Educational ResourcesDr. Evrim Baran (School of Education) and Dr. Boris Jovanovic (Natural Resource and Ecology Management) received the Miller Open Education Mini-Grant to create the first “Open Wikibook for the Aquatic Toxicology Graduate Course”. The project aims to create and integrate an Aquatic Toxicology Wikibook as a major course component to the Aquatic Toxicology graduate course that will be designed and offered in Spring 2019 in the Department of Natural Resource and Ecology Management. The course will follow the “open pedagogy approach” that will engage students in co-constructing the course content. The wikibook project is expected to impact student learning by creating a space for collaboration, connection, diversity, and critical assessment of educational content.
