Methods of Environment and Resource Management

2019-2020

Course Objective

The overall objective of the course is to provide students with an
overview of relevant methods and techniques for environmental resource
management and to teach them how to apply these methods. At the end of
the course students should:
1. Understand and be able to explain the main methods and approaches
used to support environmental and resource management;
2. Be able to apply several of the learnt methods and approaches to
environmental problems;
3. Be able to interpret, analyse, and critically reflect on the results
gained from applying the methods and approaches of the selected modules.

Course Content

This course provides students with a hands-on introduction to four
analytical methods used to support environmental and resource
management: economic analysis, scenario analysis, spatial analysis, and
stakeholder analysis. all methods are offered through a dedicated
module, and students need to choose 2 out of these four modules. Methods
will be taught through a combination
of lectures, practical classes, and (computer) exercises. The methods
will be applied on (simplified) environmental problems, and students
will reflect on the results.

Teaching Methods

The methods will be taught through a combination of lectures, practical
classes, and (computer) exercises. The methods will be applied in
(simplified) environmental problems, and students will reflect on the
results.

Method of Assessment

Each method-module will be evaluated separately, and the score for this
course will be calculated as the average score of the two selected
methods. Each method-module will be evaluated based on either individual
or group assignments, depending on the module. Details on these
assignments will be provided on canvas. Resits of the assignments and/or
oral presentations will be organized.
