Acerca del Curso

The central question of this course: “why study wood?” If “why study wood” is the question, one answer would be that it is the only raw material available to us that is truly renewable in human life span terms. Wood is as important to society today as it ever was, despite the development of many man-made substitute materials, changing resource availability, and the changing needs of society. Some items on the list of wood products stay the same (lumber, plywood and veneer for building construction, furniture, shipping pallets & crates and other containers & packaging materials, railroad ties, utility poles, chemical feed stocks, etc), but the list also keeps changing to meet new needs and challenges as the resource changes. In short, wood is a far more diverse, green, and renewable resource than you might have imagined. Join us to learn about the important role of wood in human history, civilization, and our future. By the end of the course, learners will be able to: - describe wood as a raw material and its critical importance to the world economy, and the lives of the people that make that economy work. - identify the projected trend for wood consumption to continue to grow in the coming years, despite the image of wood as a "low tech" material. - identify the ways in which wood's properties can lead to its efficient and sustainable use. -identify wood's positive role in boosting the world economy and ability to lead to unexpected vocations....

As a Civil Engineering student, this course has been very helpful for me. I do recommend to have this course in order to get the basic concept of wood science and its use as a building material.

It is interesting, but I would like to go deeper into the wood industry, new products, new techniques of sylviculture.

It was fairly good. But, the course needs to be more improved and more enjoyable one. Since I was interested about the course topic, it seems a pretty one good course for me.

Sir Lawrence's voice was too low sometimes and too loud when he starts a sentence. otherwise, this course is full of knowledge.

too basic. The course doesnt get the student interest in wood science because all is explained in a very superficial way. It may need to get deep in technical aspects of this study field and how it is related with physics, chemestry and ingeneering carreers (but in a more DEEPER or technical way).

Too focused on American context. Wrong technical information here and there. Generally uninformative if already working in the industry, your probably know more than what this course has to offer.

I appreciate the effort but althoug some interesting topics are metnioned, I think that it only moves from random ideas insted of getting a bit deeper in the interesting points (whenever possible since it is a short course).

One important think that I must say is that I found it incredible that when talking about the solutions for solving the "problem" of running out of forests to cut (that is, more management, plantations, ...) i think you forgot the most important (applicable to any other resource): REDUCE CONSUMPTION.
