The Open Science Network for Ethnobiology.

The Open Science Network is professional learning community of educators who link biological science with the human experience. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the OSN uses open technology to facilitate the exchange of educational techniques, materials, and experiences across institutional and international borders. Our mission is to form a worldwide community of instructors who freely share teaching ideas and materials to advance the field of ethnobiology education using an open-system philosophy. Whereas research skills are very rigorously taught and assessed, a similar process is not in place for teaching skills and competencies. The Open Science Network addresses this gap by focusing on the delivery of ethnobiological curricula, innovative teaching techniques, and quality standards for ethnobiology education. The network The Open Science Network can be accessed on the web at www.opensciencenetwork.net.
