Description

Our future professionals must be prepared to not only understand stakeholder attitudes concerning natural resource issues, but also know how to work with a team to manage both the people and the resources. The hybrid classroom can provide the opportunity for students to research the issues, connect directly to the stakeholders involved, and work with their classmates in the virtual world to reach consensus on how to manage the related controversy. This session discusses how undergraduate students build skills in civic engagement, leadership, communications, and conflict management in the hybrid human dimensions classroom through a progressive assignment exploring the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem. Students develop specific skills in communications and management, as well as critical thinking and higher order thinking.
