Students' Perspective Feedback

  • All the students found this case study very interesting
  • Abstract is really helpful, but it should explain what "habitat bycatch limitation agreement" means because this is not clear
  • Make the questions for students to consider more prominent, and add more of them. This would make the case study more useful for students
  • Some acronyms/abbreviations are introduced at the beginning before the name of the organization is given; should use the full name first, or provide a "key" of acronyms and definitions at the beginning
  • Some important economic terms (e.g. "free rider," "negative externality") could be bolded or emphasized a bit more, to highlight the fact that they are important economic terms
  • More images for illustration would be helpful, since the case study is very long
  • The page would flow better if some of the images were on the left rather than all on the right

A couple suggestions as you continue developing the Wiki page.

1. Make the images smaller (Med) 2. Use external links when you discuss things i.e OceanWise, David Suziki foundation and add these to the resources at the bottom of the page 3. You might consider breaking up the text with some question boxes--see the Law Template.

Day 1 Feedback

  • How will the students engage in this case study? There is a lot of good information but where is the student meant to interact?
  • What is the guiding question? Why has it worked?
  • Will students need to do research on other parts of the world to engage? Put student in "government official" role and review issue in another part of the world.
  • Add a layer of simulation.
