DANTA Tropical Biology Field Courses 2016
Do you have an interest in primates, tropical ecology and/or conservation?
Are you looking to gain valuable field experience?
Would you like to learn about other cultures?
Would you like to learn more about yourself?
Danta is pleased to announce our 2016 summer session field courses in tropical biology. Our course are intended for undergraduates or early graduate level students who have a keen interest in tropical ecosystems and conservation, but have little or no experience of working in a tropical environment. Participants may enroll on either a credit or non-credit basis.
Important note for IU students: These are non-IU overseas study experiences. If you sign up for the program, be sure to contact the IU Bloomington Overseas Study Office to let them know that you plan to attend. IUB Overseas Study contact information is here: http://overseas.iu.edu/about/contact.shtml.
DANTA operates on a cooperative and collaborative teaching model with multiple international instructors on each course. Co-instruction allows for more individualized instruction, and the sharing and appreciation of different ideas. Visiting scholars are often incorporated into the curriculum to broaden student experience.
