Prior knowledgeThe same as for Horticultural Management: Gardening design - Bachelor´s programme
ObjectivesThe aim of the course is to provide the student knowledge about and skills in using methods and material within the context of the garden design. The course also gives basic knowledge in plant physiology. On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- demonstrate basic skills in the application of the tool of the design process and methods such as site analysis, measuring, spatial design and visual communication.
- demonstrate basic skills in the application of digital tools
- account for basic plant physiological processes and concept at a general level.
ContentIn the course, the student is introduced to the tools, methods and materials which are basic within garden design. These are applied in examples and exercises where the student, step by step tackles the different parts of the design process. Theoretical sections are interleaved with practical exercises where the knowledge is deepened and strengthened by reflections over the own work process. The plant physiology includes the internal structure of plants, water and nutrient absorption, photosynthesis and organic subjects, growth factors and growth from seed to plant by means of examples which are relevant to garden design. Scheduled exercises, seminars and exkursions are compulsory.
Formats and requirements for examinationPassed exercises and seminar assignments. Active participation in compulsory parts.
Passed written assignments in plant physiology.
- If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
- If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
- If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
- For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
- The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.
- If there are special reasons, the student may take part in course components that require compulsory attendance at a later date. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
