Description/Abstract

Students participating in the Coral Reef Issues class prepare a week in the US, then travel to Honduras for a saturation experience on a coral reef. Learning skills like underwater photography and experimental design, students propose projects based on their observations and on suggested topics. Projects give students the chance to plan and implement a field activity, analyze data, present materials, and continue work when they return to home campus. The field component abroad creates an opportunity for students to bond as a research group as well as for the instructor to engage in collaborative and cooperative learning.
