Making Waves Ep. 34: Fresh Ideas for Teaching Freshwater Science Part 2.

This month, we're releasing a four-part series on tips and tricks for teaching in the freshwater sciences from educators at different institutions. This second episode in the series features Dr. Amy Burgin, an associate professor at the University of Kansas and an associate scientist with the Kansas Biological Survey.

Dr. Burgin’s research focuses on aquatic microbiology, biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology. On the podcast, she shares how she brings in freshwater science in the news to her introductory and upper level ecology classes to engage students who are interested in policy and how science connects to real-world issues.

Visit Dr. Burgin’s website for more information on her teaching and for some examples of Water in the News:
