An interactive multimedia package for teaching experimental design skills in ecology
This project involves the production of a computer-based multimedia package for teaching Ecology at undergraduate level. The product will be designed to enhance the development of investigation skills in students of ecology and biology. It is a cross-faculty initiative involving collaboration between the Faculty of Education and the Department of Biological Sciences. The package will take full advantage of the most advanced interactive multimedia technology combined with the latest trends in science education and the most recent developments in learning theory and practice. It will exploit the combination of the conceptual power of a prediction model approach with involvement of the learner in actively constructing knowledge.
