Welcome to the Course Site


This site is intended to give students in this course a space to document progress through their field research projects.

Getting Started

If you are enrolled in the course, there is more information in the main course instructions in Module 1. For example, Module 1 will let you know how to get a username and password.

If you have not already been issued with a username/password for this space, drop an email to Brian Lamb (blamb@tru.ca) or Troy Welch (twelch@tru.ca). Let them know you need access to biol3021-sw3 blog. Feel free to contact Brian or Troy with any additional issues with this site.

Important – When making your posts, please use the Category radio buttons and select two pieces of information – 1) which instructor you have (Percy or Nancy), and 2) which Post you are posting.

Additionally, we LOVE to see your photos and images, however, because of space limitations, can you please avoid uploading large size (e.g. Mb) photos. Please reduce their size (to kb) by doing a screen capture or other before posting. Otherwise we will run out of storage space! Thank you

On the site main navigation there are links to a few tutorials on the essentials of using this site and completing the assignment.  You can explore student work via navigation on the right. “Categories” are organized by assignment, and “Tags” are organized by subject matter. We look forward to seeing how this site will grow as more students make their way through the course.

Students are expected to complete the following for their projects:

Post 1: Observations

Post 2: Sources of Scientific Information

Post 3: Ongoing Field Observations

Post 4: Sampling Strategies

Post 5: Design Reflections

Post 6: Data Collection

Post 7: Theoretical Perspectives

Post 8: Tables and Graphs

Post 9: Field Research Reflections
