Designing graduate curriculum for stream restoration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The trans-disciplinary nature of stream restoration poses many challenges in designing appropriate graduate curriculum. Since the fall of 2006 the NSF-funded National Center for Earth Surface Dynamics has led the delivery of a post-baccalaureate one-year graduate certificate program in stream restoration at the University of Minnesota, graduating over 20 students to date. The design of the curriculum for this program has provided many lessons and insights. The purpose of this paper is to outline the key elements of the program, indicate how the trans-disciplinary nature of the subject is addressed and highlight successful features that could be used by others interested in developing environmental restoration curriculum.
