This course is designed to engage students in a student-centered, active learning environment focused on learning about wildland fire management. Classes will be a mix of lecture, discussion and hand-on practice with the tools and techniques of wildland fire management. Field trips to view prescribed fire operations and prescribed fire unit preparation will take place if/when opportunities and conditions permit. Assigned readings will be a basis for class discussion. Students are expected to keep up with assigned readings and come to class prepared to discuss them. Assessment will be in the form of basic comprehension tests, a midterm problem set and a more extensive final project. Opportunities for students to build upon this class are plentiful given wildland fire’s ecological, social and political importance.
