Curriculum building

From its inception, the People and Plants Initiative has sought to promote training and capacity building. Field coordinators have organized numerous courses and workshops, developing an effective approach to teaching methods in applied ethnobotany. Although we recognize the demand for curriculum building at universities, we have been able to dedicate only minimal resources to satisfying this need. In this section of People and Plants Online, we will report on our expanding efforts in curriculum building, in both formal and informal education.

One of our most recent efforts in curriculum building was a course on ethnobotany for fifth year students of the Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharmaceutical Botany of Khon Kaen University.

Taught by Gary J. Martin, People and Plants regional coordinator for Southeast Asia, it combined lectures, videos, small group discussions and practical exercises. Outlines of some of the lectures and practical exercises presented in this course have been placed on People and Plants Online.
