Module 7 — Managing for Biodiversity
and Other Objectives — Closure
 
   

There are five parts to the module closure—recall, transfer of learning, reflections, self-assessment quiz, and a celebration.

     

Recall

There are three parts to recall—answering the set of questions listed at the beginning of the module, and summarizing the module.

  1. Begin by returning to the mind map that you started at the beginning of this module and using a different colored pen add what you have learned during this module.

    This may mean that you add facts or ideas, modify some, or correct others.

    This is an important step in your learning process. You need to recognize what you learned, what you have modified, and what you had to correct because of misinformation.

  2. The following questions were listed at the beginning of this module. Now that you have completed the module (and without looking back), re-answer them. Are your answers more complete, now?

  1. Are you now familiar with managing for biodiversity and other objectives?

    • If not, what do you have to do so that you can?
       

    • Where else can you go to find more information?
       

  2. Can you discuss managing for biodiversity and other objectives?

    • If not, what do you have to do so that you can? 

    • Where else can you go to find more information?
       

  3. Why should we manage our forests for biodiversity?

  4. How does forest health fit with managing biodiversity?

    • Provide several examples of how forest health impact on planning for forest biodiversity?

  5. What are the six forest stand activities that should be considered when planning for biodiversity?

    • How does each of the six forest stand activities impact on range biodiversity objectives?

  1. Use a fishbone diagram to summarize this module. Four rib bones could be attached to the spine or possibility eight — your choice

    Add details to each of the rib bones as smaller bones. Add color to your diagram because color is a very powerful learning tool.

     

iconTransfer of learning

 
  1. Think of how the basic concepts or philosophy presented in this module can be used, modified, adjusted to other subject matter/topics.

  2. If a friend/life partner were to ask you about what you understand about managing biodiversity objectives when making stand level management decisions, what would you tell that person?

     

Reflections

 
  1. What are you going to do with the ideas that you learned in this module?

  2. Of the information provided in this module, what was relevant? Not relevant?

  3. Saddle illustration
  4. In what ways are managing biodiversity objectives and a saddle alike?

    Think of the following ideas when working through this comparison:

    • What it looks like

    • How it is used

    • Who uses it (people, animals)

    • Why are they used?

    • How it is constructed

    • Materials used to create one

    • Different styles and their uses

    • History of it

  5. In what ways are managing biodiversity objectives and a saddle not alike?

When you take time to work through this metaphor, you will understand managing biodiversity objectives very differently than before. It will expand and enhance your understanding.
