Second Edition of Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Landscape Ecology

Here we go again: this fall we will run the second edition of our Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Landscape Ecology, the discipline where natural and social sciences meet. The course features theory, methods and tools to solve landscape-related environmental problems. Building on introductory theory units, leading Landscape Ecology professors present case studies from around the world, highlighting innovative and collaborative approaches. For this year’s edition, we are excited to present a brand new case on soundscapes in the Swiss Alps.

The course includes 14 weekly units on the Edx platform, starting on September 9th. We have put a lot of effort into improving our course and make it an even more exciting learning experience. Now we look forward to re-run the course with participants from all over the world!

Learning outcomes will be:

  • Methods for the valuation of landscapes using the ecosystem service paradigm
  • How to quantify landscape attributes using landscape metrics
  • Methods to assess user conflicts in ecologically sensitive landscapes
  • How to use satellite data to detect landscape changes
  • Philosophical aspects of landscapes, land ethics and conservation
  • Theories of landscape perception and place attachment
  • Ecology in the context of urban landscapes
  • Statistical analysis with R
  • How to work with spatial data and GIS
