    OCELOTS / Bioquest Faculty Mentoring Network

    The OCELOTS network is joining forces with BioQUEST/QUBES to work with faculty who are interested in adapting a specific module in tropical ecology, hosted on the Gala platform. Participating researchers and educators are encouraged to customize the module for use in their undergraduate life sciences classrooms. Adaptations may involve modifying the module for a different educational level, translating it into a new language, adapting it for a different teaching setting or use of media or interactive data tools. While doing this, they will participate in weekly virtual sessions to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring.
