About this book

This book presents methods that will facilitate student learning through the process of scientific discovery. Chapter 1 describes how to structure and sustain a learning community that engages students in active learning. Subsequent chapters open with overviews that offer insight into how students learn and provide continuity among chapters. This book is based on a series of Pathways articles, originally published in "Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment", that illustrate effective instructional methods to help students gain conceptual understanding in ecology. It presents a philosophy of scientific teaching based on pedagogical principles designed to improve learning.
