学習の目的と方法

授業の概要 Plants are at the base of our ecosystem so conserving plant bio resources is important for survival of life on earth. Gaining knowledge about plant biology can help us address important global issues we face today like population explosion, food insecurity, pollution, climate change etc. This course is designed to deepen our knowledge about plant biodiversity and how humans can benefit from it. It aims to educate students about the need for conservation and sustainable use of these resources.
学習の目的 The purpose of this course is to introduce the world of plants and its role in human development. It helps students gain in-depth knowledge about how human civilizations have flourished by utilizing plant bio resources and developed modern agriculture, from the time of plant hunters to the present day, when we can easily consume food produced in different parts of the world. Topics like plant breeding, modern technology in food production, plant diversity conservation, plant physiology and anatomy will be focused. Students will learn to research, write essays, perform peer evaluation and make short presentations in English.
学習の到達目標 After taking this course, students can (i) gain in-depth knowledge about potentials and opportunities in the field of plant biology and be able to view it as a beneficial resource for human civilization, and (ii) acquire skills in writing academic essays and making oral presentations in English.
