Introducing week 3 material and exercises

Like Comment

Hello,

Thank you so much to those who joined in the live sessions yesterday. Lucy passed on some lovely feedback about the discussions she had with you on principles and engaging stakeholders.

THIS WEEK

This week's videos and presentations are uploaded to the week 3 folder, here. This week there is just one video:

  • Carrying out a situation analysis.

If you have any questions about this week’s topic then we will be happy to chat either via email or on here.

PREP BEFORE NEXT LIVE SESSION

In next week’s live session we will be doing lots of exercises around this topic and creating our own situation analysis. One of the exercises this week is to suggest topics you would like to create a situation analysis about in this room as a post. If you don't have a specific example you would like to work on, then please comment on someone else's suggestion who is going to be in the same live session as you and we'll team you up. You don't need to be an expert on the topic!

Here are some examples of conceptual models previous participants have created:

  • Earthworms
  • Sea birds
  • Pine martens in the UK
  • Great barrier reef
  • Orangutans and palm oil
  • Pangolins
  • Great yellow bumblebee
  • Barn owl 
  • Green turtle
  • Golden lion tamarin

KAHOOT

There will be no time for the Kahoot in the live session this week sorry, but you can do it still, see this sheet for details. It isn't quite as fun as doing it together, but still a useful learning tool.

If you’ve lost the link to join in with the live sessions you can find pinned to the left-hand side of this room. If you can’t make the live sessions, you can find a recording of it here.

With warm wishes, 
Beth and Lucy

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!

Hi everyone,

I will be moving to Vietnam soon and would like to do a situation analysis on vulnerable bear species of SE Asia (primarily moon bears and sun bears). These species are used in many different ways - medicinal medicine, entertainment, wildlife trade.  While I have not worked with these species directly, I have visited two rescue facilities operated by 'Free the Bears' and am keen to keep learning more:

I will join the morning workshop session on 9 November.
