Research in Case Studies of Real-World Problems in Conservation Leadership

This project received funding from the “Course-based Undergraduate Research (CURE) program at ODU. The project implemented a web-based tool for the MARI Case Study Template guiding students in their research of real-world wicked problems through all steps. The resulting web-based tool was used for the first time in the Summer 2019 service learning course BIOL/IDS/OEAS 467 "Sustainable Leadership" for a case study of water management in Puerto Rico and the impacts of this on freshwater ecosystems. For more details, see the cource page.

A summary of the service learning experience is provided in a News blog of the Center for Faculty Development. A full report will be available here soon.
