Melissa A. Kenney Teaching

My teaching is focused primarily on the integration of the physical, natural, and social sciences of water resources and global change. Though I have taught courses that have focused more exclusively on one of the disciplinary perspectives, I find that bringing real-world problems into the classroom requires that the students start to think about assimilating their previous coursework in new ways. In addition to classroom teaching, I work with 5-8 undergraduate and graduate students each semester, involving them in our ongoing research projects and training them in a range of decision support science methodologies.
