Discovering Trees – April 21
In this course, we find out about trees: what they are, their biology, ecology, and why they matter to humans. The course will arm beginners with an introduction to the world of trees, and also give you some tips and tricks to recognise 10 species of tree that you will commonly find in the UK.
This course is comprised of 4 topics, which will be completed 1 topic per week over a 4 week period.
This course is aimed at adults and covers the following topics from the Eco-Skills Tree Learning Framework:
- Tree01 What is a tree?
- Tree02 Tree ecology and biology
- Tree03 Introducing common coniferous trees
- Tree04 Introducing common broadleaf trees
For each topic there will be a number of resources and activities for you to work through in your own time, as well as activities or assignments and a quiz for you to complete before the end of the week. Each topic will end with a 45-minute live session with the course tutor that will consist of discussions and exercises that reflect on the learning of the previous week.Access course
