Thanks for the kind words, Abigail. The program you attended was part of my dissertation research exploring the efficacy of analogy-based learning.. As I stated before in another post, anyone who would like to get a copy, please contact me off-list (we're can't send attachments here). Using analogies effectively as a learning strategy isn't as straight- forward as it may seem. Depending on the audience, and their prior knowledge of the subject matter, it appears that it may actually be counterproductive in some cases. I'm curious: Where did you attend my course, Thailand, Red Sea, Caribbean or the US?

I still have the CD of the material about coral reef ecology and management - especially from a diver/dive business angle, but mostly relevant for all people who mange or care about coral reefs or areas where there are coral reefs.
