Lecturing, responsible instructor and supervisor

I have been lecturing in a total of 34 courses, covering twelve different biological areas, mainly ecological, and been responsible instructor for 24 different courses, held 65 times op to now. As the responsible instructor, I have the official responsibility and managing authority for these courses. This includes, e.g., planning and revising the courses (preparation of course description and instructional plan), lecturing and arranging potential lecturers and arranging examinations. Additionally I have been supervisor for 15 bachelor’s and one master’s project, covering a wide range of biological subjects.
