Three Redesigned Courses
The goal of the Reviving Traditional Forestry with HP Technology project is to provide forestry undergraduate students with three redesigned courses that maximize the use of mobile technology so students can learn forestry concepts in both the field and classroom. Students will benefit from this project by using mobile technology with simulation software to visualize spatial and temporal aspects of a forest landscape while in the forest.
This project’s redesigned courses reside within the Department of Forestry and are required for a Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry.
Listed below is a description of the three redesigned courses. You may click on the course name for detailed information on the course.
GIS in Natural Resources - FOR 599. 3 credit-hour. Principles and operations of GIS applied to forestry and natural resource problems.
Silviculture - FOR 350. 4 credit-hour. Study of ecologically based manipulations of forests to achieve desired management objectives.
Integrated Forest Resource Management (Capstone) - FOR 480. 5 credit-hour. Students are presented with a real-life management scenario and work in teams to develop a professional forest management plan for a privately-owned forested property.
