Subject: Transdisciplinary Human-Wildlife Conflict Management & Resolution (Online)

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Management of human-wildlife conflicts is considered to be one of the most challenging tasks for wildlife management agencies around the world. Like all real-world problems, addressing human-wildlife conflict requires transdisciplinary thinking and combining knowledge in new and interesting ways. Dr. Can blends scientific evidence of several academic disciplines (e.g., ecology, wildlife management, psychology, cognitive neuroscience) and 25 years of real-world experience to help participants develop a deep and holistic understanding of human-wildlife conflicts and equip them with the practical skills necessary to develop human-wildlife conflict management plans.

PREREQUISITES: None, but having sense of humor, open-mindedness and critical thinking skills would be helpful.

FORMAT: Students will learn by (1) watching pre-recorded lectures, (2) critically examining the uniquely curated course material (peer reviewed articles, gray literature, videos), (3) working on individual and small group assignments, and (4) participating in live 2-hr group discussions (Q&A sessions).
