Course Content (Syllabus)
Ecology is rapidly developing towards a variety of new directions. In this course the students would follow the major research fields of Ecology as they are described by the articles, reviews and editorials of the main stream Ecology journals in the past five years. Emphasis would be given to fields like biodiversity patterns in space and time and the strategy of its conservation, population metapopulation and community dynamics, landscape ecology, macroecology, microbial and soil ecology.

Student Assessment
Description
Student performance assessment
The assessment is primarily based on a course-related project that is supervised by one or two teachers and which the students carry out independently from each other, present orally in public, and answer to questions. The coordinator of the course and the teachers-project supervisors make the evaluation committee who decides on the marks to be given in a closed session. The student performance over the whole duration of the course is also taken into consideration: the degree to which the student pursues goals with commitment, shows enthusiasm and puts effort for quality work, becomes proficient with new tasks, responds to directions, takes initiatives, and respects the working environment and the deadlines are supplementary performance criteria. The final course mark should not differ by more than 15% from the project assessment mark.
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Assignment (FormativeFormative assessment is a range of formal and informal assessment procedures employed by teachers during the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment.)
  • Oral Exams (FormativeFormative assessment is a range of formal and informal assessment procedures employed by teachers during the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment., SummativeSummative assessment refers to the assessment of the learning and summarizes the development of learners at a particular time.)
  • Performance / Staging (SummativeSummative assessment refers to the assessment of the learning and summarizes the development of learners at a particular time.)
  • Report (FormativeFormative assessment is a range of formal and informal assessment procedures employed by teachers during the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment., SummativeSummative assessment refers to the assessment of the learning and summarizes the development of learners at a particular time.)
