Students following Semester 3 ULiège must attend, as a part of the compulsory taught activities of the Marine Ecology compulsory course, a 1 week Field Course at Stareso Marine Station (Calvi, Corsica). Students travel from Liège to Calvi and stay at the facilities of Stareso. Only students duly accredited with diving licenses and permits will also have the opportunity to carry on scientific diving sessions a part of the course tasks. The teaching strategy is based in Problem-based learning (PBL) approach in which students learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open-ended problem found in trigger material. The aim of the PBL process is not to give a defined solution but to develop other desirable skills and attributes (i.e. knowledge acquisition, enhanced group collaboration and communication).
