There are many "gaps" in our set of resources which are useful in the ethnobiology curriculum. This page provides links to resources that are helpful in creating new resources.
We are all very busy. And we have too little time to work with our ethnobiology colleagues. However, if we can each add to a shared collection, we may each have something better than if we had to create it all ourself.
Ethnobiology expertise: Is there a particular area of ethnobiology in which you hold particular expertise?
Regional knowledge: Does your region have unique information or practices which you would be willing to share with your colleagues?
Research experience: Has your research taken you to places, or involved you in studies, which you can "package" in a way which other instructors can use?
Link: Case Studies Resources
Case studies have proven to be a powerful means of inspiring students and getting students involved in active learning. There are a number of kinds of case studies. The resources on this link should help you learn more about this instructional methodology.
TED talk by Diana Laufenberg (video)
This is an inspiring presentation that describes using active assignments, like case studies.
Digital storytelling involves the production of still and video photographs. The images are not the goal, they are just part of the process of creating the story. Images are important because this technology can enliven the story. In the end, it is a combination of the story and how it is told that determines the success of the project.

This is a stimulating look at some storytelling alternatives. This talk underscores the fact that the digital resources which are available are stretching our creativity into entirely new realms.
