Environmental and Natural Resources 4890 - 5890

ENR 4890 / 5890

3 credits 1 credit for field trip, 2 for seminar. Seminar time TBA.

Spring 2014 2cr. Seminar + 1cr. Spring Break Trip to Argentina

Instructors: Drs. Indy Burke and Bill Lauenroth


This course uses a winter break trip to Patagonia in Argentina as the foundation for a semester-long course that will use an international experience to provide students tools, perspectives, knowledge, and relationships to enhance their effectiveness in leading the world to an interconnected, environmentally sustainable future.  After returning to campus, we will use interactions between groups at the University of Wyoming and the University of Buenos Aires which will take place via email, and video conferencing to explore commonalities and differences between Patagonia and Wyoming. Our goal will be to develop cross-continental, and cross-cultural understanding of current natural resource conditions. The course objectives are to: 

·         Study complex ecosystem-environment issues on two different continents;

·         Collaborate in international, interdisciplinary teams both in person, during on-site visits, and using a suite of electronic interaction tools, to develop recommendations for management strategies;

·         Learn the cultural, environmental, social, and natural resource context of both countries; and

·         Develop working relationships among future natural resource professionals across international boundaries.
