The students should have the following learning outcome from the course:
The lectures impart factual knowledge about some elements of multi-purpose forestry and involve lecturers with different professional backgrounds and attitudes to forestry. Most lectures are supplemented by literature for self-study. Some matters are only presented as lectures, other matters are left for self-study only. The excursion communicates experience with management of forests near built-up areas. There are two assignments. One aims at presenting forests visually in other terms than tables and diagrams, and is evaluated as passed/failed. The second is a group assignment that includes preparing a hand-in paper and an oral presentation.
Canvas - students that have entered for the course have web support in Canvas. The lecturer in charge of the course is available (by appointment) for questions during office hours.
