  • Reporting and management strategies (3 weeks) – OPEN

Compensation will range between $2,000-$3,200 (for entire course) depending on the number of students involved. Interested persons may apply to teach one section or several depending on their interests.

There is not a designated text for this course, however students will be purchasing the American Fisheries Society standard methods in sampling.

As of now, three students are enrolled in the course, though this number will likely increase to six or seven students.

GCU is creating a “shell” for the course so that professionals can bring in materials they feel comfortable with and are relevant for the students in their pursuit of graduate work or careers.

If interested, please contact Adrienne Crawford to set up a meeting to discuss the course or any other questions you may have.
