This is the wiki of the course Academic Skills in Forest Science.
The course consists of lectures, workshop exercises, a closing seminar with your oral presentations, as well as independent and collaborative work on learning tasks at this Wiki learning environment.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
Explain the principles of the scientific method (i.e. systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses), as well as conduct assignments following the principles of good scientific practice;
Identify and analyse the main elements of a scientific article and a MSc thesis in forest sciences, as well as write an academic abstract;
Identify the main elements of an oral academic presentation, as well as design and conduct a presentation in front of a live audience;
Compare the characteristics of various traditional, collaborative and ICT-based communication methods (incl. talks, blog, wiki, ) and their strengths when addressing different audiences (e.g. forestry specialists vs non-specialists), as well as use some of these methods to communicate scientific findings effectively.
