Our enhancement modules will give you access to digital resources to facilitate an extension of skills to augment the fieldwork experience accessed either through our digital, advanced digital, blended or outreach packages.

How this course fulfils the specification

Students will be introduced to various big data sets and GIS presentation skills that will be useful in broadening their understanding of ecological concepts as well as deepening their critical evaluation skills. Students will then practice these skills with unfamiliar data and new contexts to improve their skills and confidence in answering exam style questions and drawing conclusions. Students will also be introduced to national data sets and how this can help make synoptic links and form the basis for research skills.
