Teaching philosophy

Contributing to undergraduate and graduate education at the Department of Geography is a core mission of the Conservation Biogeography Lab.

We teach BSc / BA and MSc / MA classes with the goals to:

  • Broaden students’ understanding of concepts in biogeography, conservation science, ecology, and sustainability science
  • Introduce students to cutting edge tools to analyze phenomena in these fields
  • Foster students’ capacity to develop their own ideas and critical thinking, and to share their views
  • Develop students’ abilities to work independently and in teams
  • Allow students to learn more about how science works
  • Improve students’ communication skills
  • Offer classes that are fun!
