Let the People Judge: Community Examining Boards Help Students Learn to Communicate

This article from Ecology 101 in the Bulletin of the Ecological Society of America describes a model that utilizes a citizen review board or panel to provide input to students regarding local relevance, political climate, unnecessary terminology, etc. of their ecological research. The article makes the point that if ecological research findings and ecological initiatives toward a sustainable biosphere are to become a reality, meaningful dialogue must be established with local communities.
