Week 5 - SDWC 🐻

We are onto week 5! Last of the SDWC theory

Like Comment

Hello,

Welcome to week 5 of SDWC! This is the last of the theory of SDWC, next week will be about revising and applying your skills.

THEORY OF CHANGES 

I will give feedback on these this afternoon here. Feel free to disagree with my comments, but I do recommend reviewing them as it will really help you engage with the material and learn. It would be great if you could leave a couple of comments on other groups' theory of changes, as a way of sharing knowledge between the group and helping each other.

PAST CONCEPTUAL MODELS

Here is a folder that contains some good examples of conceptual models from past groups. I'll be selecting a few from this cohort to add to these examples. Please note, these examples are not free of mistakes, but are useful to look at. Pine marten group - you'll notice another pine marten example in there! 

THIS WEEK 

You can find this week’s videos and presentations are here. This week we cover: 

  • Setting a monitoring approach
  • Adaptations
  • Creating a research agenda.

KAHOOTS 

We’ve made the Kahoots to date available outside of the live sessions to use as a learning tool. Here is a document that contains information on how to access these.

EXAM 

The exam will be on the 17th of March at either 10 am and 6 pm GMT. To accommodate those who can't make those dates we will put on an extra session at 6 pm GMT on the 22nd of March. Unfortunately only in extenuating circumstances can we put on extra exam sessions as they require a lot of our time to run. Any questions or concerns about the exam please do get in touch. Remember, the exam is multiple choice and we will be sending out a mock next week. We don't want you to worry about the exam and will do everything we can to help.

I hope you all have good weeks and manage to fit in some outside time into your weeks. Please get in touch if you have any questions or feedback. 

With wild wishes,

Beth

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!
