well come to Adaptation to Climate Change
Climate change adaptation is an opportunity for social reform, for the questioning of values that derive inequalities in the development and our unsustainable relationship with the environment. But this outcome is by no means certain and growing evidence suggests that too often adaptation is imagined as non political, technological domain and enacted in the defensive rather than a progressive spirit.
This course intended for students with background in Environmental Science.
§Explain the adaptation strategies to climate change
§Identify the relationship between adaptation and resilience.
§Analyse and state the importance of resilience in climate change mitigation.
§Identify and explain the role of IPCC and UNFCC in addressing climate change issues.
§Developed and write the protection of environment in climate change mitigation.
§Develop and state resilience strategies to climate change.
§Define various steps to adaptation strategies.
An expected learning period of one month for the course. It can also be extended due to unforeseen circumstances
Formal studying of three weeks
One week of self-studying
As an adult learner your approach to learning will be different to that from your school days: you will choose what you want to study, you will have professional and/or personal motivation for doing so and you will most likely be fitting your study activities around other professional or domestic responsibilities.
Essentially you will be taking control of your learning environment. As a consequence, you will need to consider performance issues related to time management, goal setting, stress management, etc. Perhaps you will also need to reacquaint yourself in areas such as essay planning, coping with exams and using the web as a learning resource.
Your most significant considerations will be time and space i.e. the time you dedicate to your learning and the environment in which you engage in that learning.
We recommend that you take time now--before starting your self-study--to familiarize yourself with these issues. There are a number of excellent resources on the web. A few suggested links are:
The "How to study” web site is dedicated to study skills resources. You will find links to study preparation (a list of nine essentials for a good study place), taking notes, strategies for reading text books, using reference sources, test anxiety.
This is the web site of the Virginia Tech, Division of Student Affairs. You will find links to time scheduling (including a "where does time go?” link), a study skill checklist, basic concentration techniques, control of the study environment, note taking, how to read essays for analysis, memory skills ("remembering”).
