My main teaching responsibility over the past 10 years has been the Regime Shifts module (5hp) of a larger course on System Theory and Resilience Thinking (15hp) at the Stockholm University’s Master’s program on Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development. The module was developed with Garry Peterson and Oonsie Biggs, and it is currently thought under Garry’s leadership. I have also been guess lecturer in a Quantitative Methods course for PhD students at the Stockholm Resilience Center, and the Beckmans School of Arts and Design in Stockholm.
Below you find an annotated list of relevant teaching material. Most of it is freely available online unless otherwise noted.
- Data mining and pattern recognition is a book chapter wrote with Stefan Daume for a forthcoming book (Fall 2021) on Methods for studying social-ecological systems. It introduces students to recent developments in machine learning and the tools required to apply it to natural resource management problems. Two other chapters where I contributed are about “Dynamical Systems Modelling” (lead by Steve Lade) and “Statistical Analysis” (lead by Ingo Fetzer). The chapters are under review, contact me if you are interested on an early draft.
- Regime Shifts Database 1.0 and Causal loop diagrams are slides decks for my lectures at the Regime Shifts (MSc) class. The course is organized around a practical exercise of summarizing a regime shift case study for the regime shifts database. Some of the student assignments have been published there and contributed to international assessments such as the Arctic Resilience Assessment or the International Panel for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
- Urban social-ecological systems is a 15hp course offered at Stockholm Resilience Center. In 2020 I supported the course with a two week module on scientific methods to study urban social-ecological systems. Below you find the slides of the main lectures. They were accompanied with reading seminars were the class presented a series of papers and dissected their questions, methods, with emphasis on the appropriateness and shortcomings of the methods.
- Regime shifts, tipping points and the arts is the slide deck used at the undergrad course on design at the Beckmans School of Arts and Design in Stockholm. Course projects were developed around the concept of tipping point and exhibited in the Svensk tenn gallery.
- Network Science is the slide deck for my lecture at the Quantitative Methods (PhD) class. The networks module is divided in a series of mini lectures on different applications of network science to social-ecological problems. Students then present and “model” example applications of a selection of papers.
- Causal loop diagrams and networks are lecture notes I wrote as PhD student (2010) to prepare for my first lectures at Stockholm University. I shared them with interested students and researchers who later used the technique to contribute to the regime shifts database or develop causal loop diagrams on their own research.
