The concept of managing the landscape will be utilised as a vehicle to develop academic skills, such as research, reading and comprehension, extended writing, discussion, presentation and fundamental mapping. Students will be introduced to the features of the landscape in a physical, human and ecological sense. Work will be primarily focussed on practical case studies and will encompass an overview of key organisations and roles, utilising a wide range of sources for academic study. In addition to the development of academic skills, students will be encouraged to develop their study skills to become pro-active, confident learners, taking ownership of their learning opportunities and developing the effectiveness of their independent study.
To pass this module, students must be able to:
- Research, describe and compare key geographical, human and ecological features of two selected landscapes in a tabulated written format
- Explain the roles of key organisations in landscape management
- Present and describe key features of an OS map of a selected landscape
