Woodland ownership and low carbon society
What did we do?
Woodland management was one of the themes at the Joensuu pilot course. First, this group got some general information about climate change and low carbon society. At the next day, this group got some lectures about methods in the course, example, reporting, communication and making action research.
At next three days, students had some topic-based real-life case study visits. These visits were in a very important role in the course because their outputs were based on what was learnt during this visits. After his visits students made a scientific poster and a popular kind of video about their topic.
This kind study unity has some resource demands. First of all, you should organize education of effective reporting for students. For instance, poster and video making. Second, you should organize some work-related study visits and lectures from experts. You should also consider giving students some basic information about climate change before the beginning of the course. This can be in a form of pre-materials and assignments.
As an output, this group figured out how to promote low carbon woodland ownership. Their answer is a form of a poster. Check their answer underneath!
As another output students made a video which in their answer to the same question as in poster but more popular manner. Check their video!
