IAN Seminar Series 2014

The goal of the IAN seminar series is to provide concise, thought-provoking ideas relating to Chesapeake Bay science and management. Short presentations (15 minutes maximum length) are immediately followed by a lunchtime discussion of the topics raised by the presenter. The discussion is summarized and is posted along with a pdf version of the seminar slides. The seminars are captured on video and posted under a Creative Commons license so they can be freely shared.

ABC is no longer as easy as 123. Advances in school report cards that are applicable to ecological health report cards. - Dr. Simon Costanzo (IAN) - IAN Seminar Series
2014-01-23T12:00:00-05:00 2014-01-23T13:00:00-05:00
Macknis Room, Chesapeake Bay Program Office, 410 Severn Avenue (Suite 109), Annapolis MD
In a world overflowing with information, report cards have remained central to tracking the progress of students\' academic abilities. Their ability to synthesize and communicate information quickly and easily to a wide range of people has seen their use expand outside the school domain. Ecological health report cards, for example, have become an important tool for integrating diverse physical, chemical, and biological data types into simple scores that can be communicated to decision-makers and the general public on a routine basis.  This presentation outlines recent advances in school report card design, function, and research and how these findings can be applied to improve the delivery, reception, and effectiveness of ecological health report cards as tools for environmental management.
