“Environmental Biology: Ecosystems of Southwest Florida, taught by David Green at Florida Gulf Coast University, offers students a radically embodied, hands-on, and place-based educational experience. Though off-campus field excursions, on-campus Nature Walks, and field-based data collection laboratory sessions students collect information and tackle tough questions about the future of southwest Florida's coastal watershed and its role in the quality of life for both human and animal inhabitants. As the syllabus warns, "you will get wet, muddy, hot, insect-bitten, itchy, sweaty. Be prepared!" David's ambition for the course is to combine the advantages of both field-based and web-based learning by teaching his course collaboratively with others in the SENCER community offering similar courses in coastal watersheds. Students dealing with unique local environments could interact, share knowledge, and compare data through web-based tools, broadening the context of STEM learning for everyone.” --- Eliza Reilly, National Center for Science and Civic Engagement
