Teachings taken in charge by our staff range from biostatistics to aquatic ecology for biologists. Here is the complete list of the courses we teach at UMONS. Links to the study program of the Faculty of Science.
All our lectures and exercises are organized around actual examples and are presented with slides. For lectures with a more mathematic flavor (biostatistics, data analysis), explanation of the concepts in an intuitive way is preferred over the development of mathematical demonstrations, too abstract for biologists. The development of student skills to analyze its own datasets, using an open source and easily available software (the statistical software R) is considered as the cornerstone aspect. Good practices in scientific communication are also emphasized (written reports for the exercises, poster and oral presentations in English during the "workshop training" activities).
