Resources for Distance Learning
Thursday, March 19, 2020
Posted by: Alexis Gibson
The world is shifting rapidly in response to the novel Coronavirus pandemic. At SER, we want to do what we can to keep our community connected during the crisis by increasing the number of virtual programs we are offering, expanding access to high quality resources, and highlighting existing resources that can be used.
1. Wednesday Webinars
Starting March 25, we are launching a free weekly webinar series that will offer access to live and archived programs that can be used by anyone for distance learning and professional development. For a current schedule of the series and a list of webinars that are already available to view, visit this page.
2. SER Conference Library
The SER Conference Library includes 350 recorded presentations from the September 2019 8th World Conference on Ecological Restoration in Cape Town, South Africa.
Access to the entire library is FREE for members, and members can now share this access with their students and colleagues through 31 May 2020. Visit the Members’ Center to obtain your Access Code and sharing instructions.
3. Existing Resources
As a reminder, the Restoration Resource Center offers a database with over 2,500 resources (including white papers, peer-reviewed publications, restoration tools, and audio/visual content) and 200 restoration projects from around the world.
Additionally, members receive complimentary access to our journal Restoration Ecology, and SERNews themes also make nice mini-collections on specific topics.
We want to support you during this time whether you are looking for resources for online teaching or your own professional development. Tell us how you plan to incorporate these sessions into your curriculum, or post a note to the Member Discussion Forum on the SER platform.
