Laura Ambrose has been a Sessional Instructor with Luther College at the University of Regina since 1999. She attended the University of Regina for a few years before moving out of the province to explore new horizons where she attended the University of Toronto (Scarborough) and completed an Honours degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Studies (Distinction) in 1994. In her final year, Laura completed a research project that resulted in the publication of the results in the Canadian Journal of Zoology, in a paper titled Trophic dynamics of two sympatric species of riparian spider (Araneae: Tetragnathidae). After that, and because Saskatchewan, where she has called home for almost her entire life, called she returned to the University of Regina to work in a plant ecology lab, and a limnology lab, for a few years before starting research for a Master of Science degree. Laura completed her research on prairie restoration and received her M.Sc. in 1999. Her thesis, titled Seed persistence of an introduced and a native grass species in a prairie old field, looked at the survival of seeds in the soil and the potential for seeding fields with prairie species to restore native prairie. This research was part of a larger research project on restoring native prairie at Grasslands National Park. Other research projects included population dynamics of meadow voles (Microtus pennsylvanicus), community dynamics of native praires, and nitrogen deposition in prairie and forest habitats.Current areas of interest include using sound pedagogy to engage students as scholars, introduce students to applied sciences through case study work, implementing technology in the lab and classroom, and coaching students through transitions into, throughout, and out of university. Laura co-wrote ancillary materials for the introductory textbook Life Matters: Connecting biology to your world (2016). In 2017, Laura won Centre for Teaching and Learning Award for Innovation in Teaching from the University of Regina. Outside of the university, Laura is involved the parents association for the music program at Campbell Collegiate.
