Applied Entomology

Christos Athanassiou - Undergraduate - (A-)
Agriculture, Crop Production and Rural Environment, University of Thessaly

This course aims in introducing in applied- economic entomology, with emphasis in pests of cultivated plants (orchards, arable crops, horticulture, and urban plant species). In this course, the students will be familiarized with subjects related with the phenology, biology ethology and management of insect pests in crops. For this purpose, pest species will be presented per type of crop (i.e. cereals, legumes etc.), and are classified according to their importance. In addition, the priorities in pest management practices and strategies is analyzed, at the crop level and under the basis of area-wide management. Moreover, emphasis is given in integrated and biological control, as well as in the major action plans, decision support systems and crop protection protocols. Similarly, under the framework if the laboratory exercises of this course, the students are familiarized with the major morphologic characteristics of the species that are to be examined, as well as the symptoms that lead to the accurate diagnosis of the infestation. With the successful completion of this course, the students will: • Have the basic knowledge of identification of a wide range of major pest species in crop protection, as well as the identification of the symptoms that are related with infestations by each pest. • Build the capacity of assessing and utilizing the available methods of integrated and biological control. • Evaluate the design and deployment of pest management programs, at the farm and at the area-wide scale.

Remote Sensing - Photo Interpretation

Konstantinos, Ioannis Perakis, Faraslis - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of Planning and Regional Development, University of Thessaly

The aim of this course is to provide a spatial perception via satellite imagery and present research initiatives to the study of the earth surface. This involves the combination of satellite imagery and their derivatives with ancillary data (topographic, thematic maps and a variety of digital layers), taking into consideration the spatial, temporal, spectral and radiometric resolution of satellite imagery.

Athanasios Tsiokanos - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of Physical Education and Sports Science, University of Thessaly

The aim of the module is the familiarization of the undergraduates with the basic theoretical aspects of mechanics applied to the human neuromuscular system of a sports performer, sports implements, and footwear and surfaces.

humanities and arts subject

Intercultural Education: Theory and Practice

Christos Govaris - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Primary Education, University of Thessaly

The aim of this course is 1. To understand the educational perspective of the current multicultural situation 2. To construct knowledge of theoretical principles and pedagogic aims on several educational perspectives of the migratory society 3. To develop self-reflexivity on the concepts of culture, cultural difference and the recognition of difference at their educational contexts of action. 4. To integrate the required teaching skills with lesson planning and implement appropriate activities for reflective intercultural learning.

History of Historiography

Christina, Despoina, Polimeris, Androniki, Ioanna, Rika, Dimitris, Giorgos, Pothiti Agriadoni, Valatsou, Voglis, Dialeti, Laliotou, Benveniste, Bilalis, Plakotos, Hantzaroula - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology, University of Thessaly

The course examines narratives of the past in Western Culture. It will be of interest to students who would like to have a deeper understanding of historical thinking and knowledge. The course discusses historiography as a field of knowledge and as a cultural practice. It focuses on major hirstoriographical trajectories from medieval to modern times. The course detects nineteenth-century foundation of history as an academic discipline while special attention is given to twentieth-century shift from the positivist paradigm to the “new history”. The course highlights the following topics: the Annales School, social history, “history from below”, urban history, microhistory and the “revival of narrative”, women’s and gender history, cultural history, oral history, public history, history in the digital age, and the relationship between memory and history.

Language Teaching II

Evgenia Vasilaki - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Primary Education, University of Thessaly

Within the framework of the recent official curricula for teaching Greek language in primary education (2003, 2011), the course aims to further familiarize students with the relevant concepts and terminology and to help them implement the methodological principles of literacy teaching in lesson design and planning of activities. In other words, during this course it is attempted to translate theory into practice so as to enable prospective teachers to develop and organize real class lessons in general, and to be adequately prepared for School Teaching Practice, in particular.
