CTL Instructional Awards- Innovative and Out of Class Teaching: Kristin Brzeski (CFRES)
The Jackson Center for Teaching and Learning will recognize Kristin Brzeski (CFRES) as co-recipient of the CTL Instructional Award for Innovative or Out of Class Teaching on Thursday, October 27 at 3:45pm. Kristin was selected for the award after being nominated via the Deans’ Teaching Showcase during the spring 2022 semester.
Brzeski’s award presentation: Integrating regional natural resource partners into lab and field based learning
Abstract: Dr. Kristin Brzeski will share her experiences developing and funding a field and wet-lab based component in her wildlife courses. In this presentation, Dr. Brzeski will emphasize how she integrates partnerships with the MI Department of Natural Resources (DNR) into her instruction, where students generate data that is presented directly to DNR biologists. Through this process, students get hands-on field and lab based training while actively participating in the process of translating research for applied management. Students also get tips and advice for advancing their careers with land-management organizations such as the DNR.
This event will be in the East Reading Room of the Van Pelt Library
