At the Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg, I am currently establishing new courses for BSc and MSc students studying Forest Sciences and Environmental Sciences. I will teach Forest Genetics at the BSc and MSC level. In addition, I will give a course on Conservation Biology. My working group is also involved in the following courses: Environmental Microbiology and Biochemistry (BSc), Bioinformatics (MSc), Fauna and Flora (BSc), and others. As courses are starting, I will add more detailed descriptions, especially on elective courses.
Between 2014 – 2021, I have been teaching several courses in the BSc Biology and MSc Biodiversity and Conservation at the Faculty of Biology of the Philipps University Marburg:
In the summer semester, I taught a course on “Citizen Science in Ecology and Conservation“. Students learned about citizen science, explore ongoing projects, prepare seminar talks on different topics linked to CS, and most importantly, worked on their own CS projects.
Further, I was involved in the seminar of the MSc course on “Forest conservation and management” where we focused on conflicts that arise among the various stakeholders in forest conservation and management.
In the winter semester, I taught a course on “Conservation biology“. In the seminar, students presented publications relevant in the context of conservation biology. In the course, students learned how genetic methods can be applied in conservation biology. We worked with serveral data sets, and students learned how to analyze, illustrate and interpret the data in the context of conservation biology.
