3 The Open Science Network proposes a modified approach to the Vision and Change for Undergraduate Biology core concepts to include humans and social systems. Four additional interdisciplinary concepts are suggested: connections, awareness, change, and diversity separate from nature. OSN then proposed four additional concepts that highlight the interdisciplinary nature of ethnobiology. They are (1) awareness, (2) diversity, (3) change, and (4) connections (McClatchey et al. 3). Learning outcomes are another central feature of the recommendations, in line with the new emphasis on twenty-first century strategies for students.
