Field Skills in Environmental Sciences: Post-Pandemic Hands-On Learning
In this intensive course, students will gain hands-on experience in standard field observation, data collection, and documentation practices that were missed due to the pandemic. These skills are an integral part of the work in the fields of ecology, natural resources, and biodiversity studies. Students will improve their abilities in field observation; documentation of geographical, environmental and temporal conditions; standard practices for field measurement; organization and visualization of field data; and basic concepts of statistics important in understanding field observations. Students will attend field and lab sessions and will keep field notes and a detailed field journal. Weekly work will include written assignments during class time and weekly homework assignments.
