Name: Phillips, Meg

Institution: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

Description of Teaching:

I work as the Invasive Species Education and Outreach Coordinator at the NYSDEC. In 2016 and 2017 I have been working with a team to develop invasive species curriculum “mini units” aligned to the new P12 New York State Science Learning Standards. I also occasionally am invited to present as a guest lecturer for undergraduate ecology and environmental science courses. For the classroom component, I typically provide an overview of the invasive species program in New York, give examples of species and the impacts that they have had locally, and offer solutions for preventing their spread and establishment (prevention, early detection, rapid response, monitoring). I like to include a field component if time allows, during which students learn how to identify a handful of species and report infestations to the iMap Invasives database.

Name: Kolozsvary, Mary Beth

Institution: Siena College

Description of Teaching:

I am an Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and Sciences at Siena College. I offer an upper-level majors elective course, ENVA 305, Invasive Species. I also incorporate invasive species lectures, labs, and group projects that involve invasive species in other courses (e.g., ENVA 250 Ecosystem Ecology, ENVA 450 Conservation Biology, ENVA 015 Principles of Ecology (non-majors, core discplinary course)). I have guest lectured on the topic in another non-majors, core disciplinary course, ENVA 020 Biological Diversity). I also mentor undergraduate researchers in independent studies involving invasive species (field and lab based projects; summer and during the school year).

Description of Teaching:

I am a professor at Union College. I incorporate invasive species most directly into my upper-level Plant Ecology course (Bio324) for biology majors. There are significant components dealing with ecology and impacts.
