Through the combination of three on-campus workshops and an intensive 5-day field experience, students will engage in socio-ecological study of a particular Australian ecosystem. Important social and ecological concepts like sustainability, the allocation of scarce resources, the importance of cultural and biological diversity, the interactions and interdependence of organisms and the role of climate and climate change will be integrated and explored. Experiential, project and place-based teaching and learning practices will be employed to give students an opportunity to develop deep understandings of, appreciation for and commitment to the complexities and vulnerabilities of the Australian environment.
