41828-01 - Vorlesung mit Übungen: Perspectives of Natural Sciences on Sustainability 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2020
Angebotsmuster Jedes Herbstsemester
Dozierende Patricia Holm (patricia.holm@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Lecture is full. No enrollment on MOnA possible anymore.

The course is offered within the scope of the "Transfaculty Cross Section Program Sustainable Development" (Transfakultäres Querschnittsprogramm TQNE: https://www.msd.unibas.ch/en/study-programs/tqne/). The program consists of 3 introductory lectures with practical course (lecture A and B, respectively, offered in fall semesters, C offered in spring semesters) dedicated to conveying the foundations of sustainable development. An additional integration seminar (D, offered in spring semesters) engages with interdisciplinary work. The assignment and completion of D requires the successful completion of two lectures from A, B, C.

The topic "Food and Sustainability" serves as an integration focus for the entire TQ NE and, thus, also for this lecture. The course includes a lecture and topic-specific practical course. While the lecture deals with systematic overview knowledge, the practical course focus' on empirical case studies.







Lernziele The students
- know current challenges of Sustainable Development (SD) and are able to present them from a natural science perspective;
- have a basic understanding of how different perspectives shape the idea of SD;
- know which issues different natural sciences disciplines raise and know their expected contribution to the analysis of SD;
- can formulate reasonable expectations towards different disciplines of natural sciences.

Students are expected to
- understand basic scientific methods in natural sciences;
- have fundamental knowledge in natural sciences, which allow a critical appraisal of environmental issues and SD;
- are aware of interrelations within the environment and between human and nature;
- practice goal-oriented group work.
