Barfield, Keri [1], Harrison, Patricia [1].

Sharing Our Ethnobotany Curriculum: The Open Science Approach.

The Open Science Network (OSN) is a National Science Foundation funded project, coordinated by the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. OSN has been leading a worldwide collaboration of ethnobiology educators through the continual exchange and enrichment of educational techniques, materials, and experiences. This Network champions open educational resources and uses the latest web technologies to encourage sharing, generation, and management of educational tools and curriculum for the traditional and non-traditional classroom. Ethnobiological teaching resources have been made openly available by researchers and educators based at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Frostburg State University, University of South Carolina, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and University of Kent among others.
