Courses

Some learning cannot be done in an ordinary classroom.  Some experiments cannot be done in a laboratory.  The close proximity of the IU Research and Teaching Preserve (RTP) to Indiana Unversity - Bloomington makes it easily accessible to Indiana University faculty and students for unique learning opportunities!

Still unsure?

We encourage you to think outside of the box.  Science or field-based classes are not the only ones that may benefit from utilizing the Preserve's secluded and transformative spaces.  Check out the classes below that have either been held here in the past or are currently offered.
