      • How to work with students

      • How to give information

        • Learning rules

        • Ecology

        • Behavior

        • Scientific based teaching

      • About the excursion: we walk in a forest, one of us is the teacher and the others are students, and we demonstrate how we work with students when listening to birds/observing birds. The teachers will change all the time, so we all (two from each country: Norway, Bulgaria, Latvia, Serbia and Lithuania) will be the teacher at least once. We give comments and feedback to each other. In this session, we don’t need a lot of birds, but total silence is very inconvenient. It would be interesting to be both in a forest and at a wetland/open field if any birds are there in the beginning of March.
