Information density and synthesis pyramid
Information density and synthesis pyramid developed to help explain potential ecohealth report card reach.
Setting the course for sustainability with Ecosystem Health Report Cards course
IAN will be teaching a course on developing ecosystem health report cards this fall. The course is intended for environmental managers and practitioners outside of academia. Participants will learn the complete process of report card generation, including stakeholder mapping and engagement, conceptualization of ecosystem function, selection of indicators and benchmarks, data analysis, communication of results, and leveraging the report card to make real change. This course will employ a "flipped" or "inverted" classroom, in which lectures will be provided before class time via short YouTube videos. Students will learn how to be a discussion facilitator, rapporteur, and synthesis writer to insure the class time sessions are productive. Course details and registration info coming soon!

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
