The course required the students to have a direct engagement with the natural environment by visiting at least one park, green space or nature reserve. A number of student excursions were conducted by myself with the help of an expert guide. During the visit to the site, the students were asked to keep a journal and record their personal observations as well as identify the fauna and flora of the area. These notes were to inform their blog posts about the site visit.
A selection of the students’ blogs can be viewed by clicking on the following links:
